Foreign Language Education: A Perspective for Change.
The purpose of this evaluation of the Nashville Metropolitan Schools' foreign language program is to determine the strengths and weaknesses of the program and to obtain a model for expansion and improvement. A method of evaluation known as the "Program Evaluation and Review Technique (PERT)" was adapted and implemented by local staff and national leaders in language curriculum planning. Detailed explanation of the objectives of the project and the process used for planning the program evaluation includes charts illustrating: (1) the major work units of program evaluation, (2) subdivision of work units in a work breakdown structure, (3) tabular work breakdown structure for foreign language program evaluation, and (4) summary network for foreign language program evaluation. Sections on program characteristics, teacher self-evaluation instruments, opinionnaires, proficiency tests, in-system observations by outside consultants, a report of the visiting team, and a section containing the summary, conclusions, and recommendations are included.
