L'evaluation des programmes d'etudes au Quebec. Etude de cas: Les programmes des techniques d'education en services de garde au Cegep de Saint-Jerome (The Evaluation of Programs of Study in Quebec. Case Study: Child Care Education Programs in CEGEP Saint Jerome).
Quebec Commission on the Evaluation of Collegiate Teaching (Quebec).
Providing a case study of instructional organization and evaluation processes in Quebec's "Colleges d'enseignement general et professionnel" (CEGEPs), this report describes the provincial Commission on the Evaluation of Collegiate Teaching and a 1994 evaluation of "Techniques d'education en services de garde" (TESG), or child care education, programs at CEGEP Saint-Jerome. Following introductory materials, the first part reviews the creation of the Commission in 1993, describes its mission and general activities, and discusses the organization of program evaluations, including their legal context, objectives, criteria, and stages. The second part describes the general characteristics and academic organization of CEGEP Saint-Jerome and provides a case study of issues and actions taken related to the 1994 evaluation of TESG programs. The case study examines the college's methods for evaluating programs before and after the creation of the Commission, the history of TESG programs at the college, steps taken and committees formed to prepare for the evaluation, the distribution of responsibilities in the process, the adoption of self-evaluation reports, the Commission's site visit and preliminary report, the college's response to the report, and the preparation of the Commission's largely positive final report. Finally, the third part focuses on the impact of the TESG evaluation from both the college's and the Commission's point of view. A graph comparing pre-university instructional systems in Canadian provinces, the United States, and France and an organizational chart of program evaluation in Quebec are appended. Contains 14 references. (BCY)
