Self-Evaluation of Foreign Language Programs in Ohio.
Danner, G. Richard; And Others
An informal guide to the self-evaluation of school and college foreign language programs is presented. Its purpose is to suggest guidelines to departments that have not yet developed their own full evaluative procedures. Questions relate to: (1) philosophy and goals; (2) curriculum, methods, materials, and facilities; (3) faculty training and involvement; (4) ancillary activities; and (5) evaluative procedures. Each of the five areas treats many sub-topics relating to course objectives, department goals and rationale, various kinds of tests, teaching the four skills, the role of grammar, provision for the individuality of students, articulation between levels of instruction, culture, student-teacher ratio, promotion of professional growth activities, method of choosing texts, extra-curricular foreign language activities, and all types of evaluation procedures. No single methodological approach is emphasized. (Author/AMH)
