Language Program Evaluation Tools
The ability to measure success and effectively tell one’s story is key to strengthening language programs. NMELRC has therefore teamed up with the National Foreign Language Center at the University of Hawaii to make tools and training available, including:
- Easy-to-use online guides for assessing student learning outcomes and protocols for evaluation of various aspects of language programs;
- Training for language professionals in pragmatic assessment and program evaluation, ranging from online video clips to intensive workshops;
- Illustrative case studies of language programs.
These tools and training will help stateside and abroad programs better focus their energy and efforts on their goals and thereby assist in attracting support.
