Abstract

This article presents the design of an evaluation of a tertiary preparatory program within the university context. The paper demonstrates some of the essential elements of effective program evaluations. An evaluation of a teaching and learning program has several benefits. The outcomes may create a deeper understanding of the learners’ and instructors’ satisfaction with new or existing programs, help academics assess the development of their students’ motivation for studies, provide strategic direction for development of new knowledge and career skills and gather evidence on whether the learners can apply knowledge through behavioral changes, self-directed learning and setting their career paths.
