Evaluation

Lifelong Learning ProgrammeThis is a project into Lifelong Learning Programme Comenius, a School Partnerships SWEDENROMANIA.

Different aspects of the project will be evaluated during the two-year project using the Mice1 evaluation techniques:

– the willingness to participate at the project’s activity will be estimated by an initial questionnaire applied to the students.

– the quality of the final product will be evaluated based on the water case studies and on the number and quality of the created biographies, on the number and quality of the experimental sheets created for the water samples analysie, the number of essays done on the chosen themes and on the project blog.

– the quality of the communication between schools will be quantified by the number of e-mail exchanged by the coordinators.

– communication between students will be evaluated by the frequency of the email or messenger contact in a period.

– cultural impact on the participants to the mobilities will be evaluated using questionnaires (for teachers and for students).

– language proficiency in the target language will be evaluated by a final test.

– effectiveness of the language courses will be done using the presence sheets.

– the efficiency of the dissemination strategy will be quantified by the number of the CDs and/or number of booklets offered to other schools or organizations.

– the visibility of the project blog will be measured using a web counter showing the numbers of visitors at every access of the page.

– apart from a formal formative evaluation, we will continually be gathering information about how well the project is working whilst being carried out, e.g. course evaluation sheets, attendance and informal feed-back. This information wil be feeded back into the project to make adjustments to the project if necessary.

– one project reported using observation of web site interaction to gather data about their project. The “invisibility” of the observer in this instance overcomes any potential problems with the participant’s behaviours being affected.

– it is important that participants see the results of any feed-back they give, and know that their views and opinions are being acted upon.
