Evaluating Programs of Studies: General Guidelines.
Quebec Commission on the Evaluation of Collegiate Teaching (Quebec).
In June 1993, the Quebec Commission d'Evaluation de l'Enseignement Collegial (CEEC) was created to conduct evaluations of the assessment of student achievement and quality of college programs of studies in the province. This report presents, in two parts, CEEC guidelines for evaluating programs of studies. Part 1 describes the CEEC and educational renewal in Quebec, highlighting the legal duties and responsibilities of the Quebec Minister of Education in determining program standards, the colleges in implementing authorized programs, and the CEEC in evaluating institutional policies on program evaluation. Part 2 discusses the CEEC's objectives and methodology in evaluating programs of study and their implementation, describing the following steps in CEEC evaluations: (1) the evaluation guide and criteria will be adapted to each program of studies to be evaluated; (2) using the CEEC guide, each institution will conduct its own evaluation of the program and submit a report to the CEEC; (3) the self-evaluation report will be reviewed and site visits conducted; (4) a preliminary evaluation report will be prepared and distributed to the institution for response and corrections; and (5) a final evaluation report will be prepared. Finally, the criteria for program evaluations are presented, including program relevance, program coherence, the value of teaching methods and student supervision, the appropriateness of resources allocated to educational needs, the effectiveness of the program, and the quality of program management.
