Arena, Francesco; And Others
This guide is designed to support the self-evaluation procedures of public colleges in Quebec, Canada, offering a Social Sciences program. First, the guide presents evaluation topics for the revised Social Sciences program and proposed evaluation criteria and sub-criteria. Areas to be evaluated are listed under the headings "program coherence,""student population characteristics and academic supervision,""human resources,""program effectiveness and academic success," and "program management." For each heading, a link is established between the points to be evaluated and the evaluation criterion and subcriteria to be used. The second part of the guide describes each of these criteria and sub-criteria in context, explains the elements to be evaluated, specifies supporting documents required, and provides instructions on how to complete the self-evaluation report. Appendixes include: (1) a lexicon of terms; (2) a list of supporting documents which must be submitted with the evaluation report; (3) a table summarizing self-evaluation data to be collected; (4) a description of the revised Social Science program; (5) a list of institutions authorized to offer the Social Science program; and (6) a list of advisory body members.
