English Language Training Program Self-Review: A Tool for Program Improvement. ELT: Technical Assistance for English Language Training Projects, 1997-1998.
The English language training (ELT) program self-review document provides a framework for systematic and consistent self-evaluation of local ELT programs, using specific quality indicators. The document is divided into eight sections, each defining a major component or area of responsibility for effective ELT operation: program planning; professional development; curriculum development; assessment for student placement; assessment for monitoring progress; accountability for student outcomes; classroom instruction; student support services; and community involvement and collaboration. The 15 quality indicators used describe critical elements typically found in exemplary programs; each program component includes one or more quality indicators, as appropriate to the implementation of that component. Each quality indicator is followed by four sets of scoring criteria that provide benchmarks for performance. Sample measures accompanying each of the indicators provide examples of evidence of the extent to which the indicator is being achieved or practices. An introductory section offers suggestions for conducting a successful self-review. (MSE) (Adjunct ERIC Clearinghouse on Literacy Education)
