Responsibility for planning language teaching programmes now carries with it a strong element of accountability. Evaluation of the whole process of course design, development and implementation is therefore a necessary area of activity for course designers, language planners and researchers. Evaluating Second Language Education is divided into three parts: - Part One presents a review of the literature showing how the field got to where it is - Part Two contains a series of eight original case-studies which illustrate the strengths and limitations of qualitative and quantitative approaches - Part Three contains practical advice on how to design and execute evaluations in the field. It is a valuable resource both for those already engaged in evaluation and for those in training.
