General Guide to the Evaluation of Programs of Studies by the Commission d'evaluation de l'enseignement collegial.
Quebec Commission on the Evaluation of Collegiate Teaching (Quebec).
Designed to inform administrative and teaching staff at Quebec's colleges of the Commission d'evaluation de l'enseignement collegial's (CEEC's) procedure for evaluating programs of study, this report provides information on the CEEC's approach and the colleges' role, and expands on previous guidelines issued by the CEEC. Following a brief introduction, chapter 1 summarizes the CEEC's approach and outlines the following steps in the program evaluation process: an advisory body is formed to identify issues, prepare unique evaluation guides for individual programs, and develop evaluation tools; the college conducts a self-evaluation of the program in question; the CEEC analyzes the self-evaluation report and visits the college; and the CEEC rules on the program and provides recommendations. Chapter 2 offers suggestions on organizing college self-evaluations and details the following criteria for programs: (1) program relevance; (2) program coherence; (3) the value of teaching methods and student supervision; (4) appropriateness of human, material, and financial resources; (5) program effectiveness; and (6) quality of program management. This chapter also provides a model self-evaluation report. Chapter 3 explains the college visit and its objectives, indicating that it should last between 1 to 3 days depending upon the scope of the program and evaluation. Finally, chapter 4 reviews the CEEC's evaluation report and describes the range of findings, from satisfactory to partially satisfactory to unsatisfactory. (KP)
