This report provides a guide for evaluation of the implementation of the general education component of programs of studies in Quebec. The college education reform of 1993 has had a particularly strong impact on the general education component of education programs. To gauge the scope of changes made to general education and of efforts made to ensure implementation of the core component, the Commission d'evaluation de l'enseignement collegial has asked the Quebec college system to use this specific guide, which contains the information needed to aid the institutions in the self-evaluation process. Evaluation issues include access to quality general education, joint efforts in implementing general education, and effectiveness of general education implementation and academic success. Colleges are asked to use eleven sub-criteria. The sub-criteria are grouped to enable colleges to assess the implementation of pedagogical aspects, resources and management, and results. Clearly defined learning activities are consistent with the determined standards and objectives. Teacher competence and motivation are maintained and developed through research or professional development activities. The college shall evaluate whether an acceptable proportion of students complete general education within the time frame prescribed for awarding the diploma. Five appendices are included. (JA)
