How To Promote Leadership and Participation in the Process of Periodic Programme Evaluation: Lessons Learned from Evaluation Practice in Higher Education in Quebec.
Johnson, Helene
This paper discusses the style of leadership required in an evaluation process as well as the conditions under which the participation of various groups of evaluation users may be ensured, using examples from higher education in Quebec (Canada). It reviews the organization and evaluation of higher education institutions in the province, providing specific information on program evaluation at Laval University. The paper then reviews conditions favoring evaluation success, including institutional commitment, clear definitions of roles and responsibilities, clarification of what is at stake in regard to the evaluation process, the cooperation of those involved in the evaluation, promptness in the completion of the evaluation, and the importance of professional help and support services. It is concluded that if participation in the evaluation process is to be effective, shared leadership must be carried out during all stages of the evaluation process. It is argued that this type of leadership emerges in response to the dictates of the situation, to the competencies required and to the roles played. (MDM)
