Cambridge University Press 1995 0521484383 / 9780521484381 Paperback Very Good 
Although much has been written about the testing and evaluation of language students, few books have dealt with the much broader issue of measuring th e success of language programs. Filling a critical gap in the literature of applied linguistics, Language Program Evaluation provides teachers, resear chers, and administrators with a complete introduction to both qualitative and quantitative approaches to evaluating the effectiveness of their progra ms. Through a careful blend of theory, research, and practice, the author p resents a testing model that is specifically tailored to the concerns of la nguage education programs and which can be adapted to different contexts an d updated as teaching and learning situations evolve. He proposes a shift f rom purely quantitative studies which consider only end-of-program achievem ent gains to ones that include an investigation of program process using qu alitative, naturalistic methods.

10 Staton, Jana Dialogue Journal Communication: Classroom, Linguistic, Social, and Cognitiv e Views
Ablex Publishing 1988 0893914312 / 9780893914318 Paperback Very Good 
A bright clean softcover small crease to frontcover, no markings throughout : The thesis of this volume is that writing done by students who control their own topics, who have genuine purposes for writing, and have a real, known audience, is quite different and valuable in its own right. It forms a rich source of information about how young students think, manage their social interactions, and use language with competence to get things done. By selecting dialogue journal writing as a corpus for analysis, it is possible to observe children's communicative competence in using written language purposefully, apart from their ability to master a particular form of writing. The central argument is that dialogue journal communication represents a kind of personal literacy, prior to and more comprehensive than the particular literacies emphasized and assessed in schools. The contents include a practitioner's view of the practice itself and a summary of the research study methods developed to analyze interactive written conversations.
