The Evaluation of Overseas Study Programs: Two Case Studies (Central America and Spain).
Pfnister, Allan O.
Study abroad programs have, in the last few years, expanded to unprecedented proportions with over half of the American liberal arts colleges permitting their students to earn credit overseas. As large as the programs have become, however, relatively few, if any, evaluation procedures have taken place for these programs. This document describes 2 rather different approaches for the evaluation of overseas programs. The first summarizes the impressions of a 4-man commission requested by Goshen College (Indiana) to evaluate a unique foreign study program, the Study-Service Term. The other reviews the efforts of a group of study directors to establish some type of reporting and evaluation methods for American programs in Spain. The 2 approaches reflect the increasing concern for examining the quality of American overseas study experience. Continuing effort will be needed at both points. (HS)
