Programme Evaluation in ELT Résumé

Programme Evaluation in ELT Cyril J. Weir

This book equips readers to deal with the types of evaluation they may be involved in during their professional lives, as agents of insider or outsider evaluations or as subjects of evaluation. It provides a framework of the field, a series of case studies illustrating types of evaluation, guidance on essential evaluation procedures, and a comprehensive bibliography. Based on the practical experience of the authors as insider and outsider evaluators of institutions, teacher education programmes, language courses, short training courses and ELT projects, it will be of value as a guide for practitioners and as a coursebook for students of the field.
