Evaluation des programmes de techniques d'education en services de garde (Evaluation of Programs of Educational Methods in Child Care Services. 2410-0521.
Vigneau, Paul, Comp.
In March 1994, Quebec's Commission on the Evaluation of Collegiate Teaching initiated an evaluation of "Techniques d'education en services de garde" (TESG) programs, or educational methods in child care services. This report presents results from the evaluation in three parts. The first section describes the following four stages of the evaluation: formation of a consulting committee and evaluation guide; implementation of self-evaluations at colleges; analysis of the self-evaluation reports and site visits; and preparation of preliminary and final reports. The second section focuses on TESG programs leading to a diploma, providing a description of the program, general results from the Commission's evaluation, and discussions of strengths and problems. Strengths described include qualified and motivated instructional personnel, active and innovative pedagogical methods, and adequate resources, while problems include the need to improve training for students working with 6 to 12 year olds and the articulation of students into the programs. The final section focuses on TESG programs leading to an "attestation d'etudes collegiales," or certificate, also describing the program, general outcomes, and strengths and problems. Strengths discussed in this section include well-trained and experienced instructors and effective counselors, while problems include difficulties in making the part-time program coherent, the complexity of collaboration with government agencies, and insufficient material resources. Appendixes provide a summary of evaluation reports, a list of consulting committee members, a description of evaluation criteria, and a list of outside experts consulted. (BCY)
