UN PREMIER RÔLE POUR L’EVALUATION SUR LA SCENE DE LA DIDACTIQUE ?

BARBOT, Marie-José


Evaluation is the domain that provides evidence that changes have occurred in an educational structure and changes in evaluation systems influence teaching and learning practice. The article looks into the characteristics of the 3 main types of evaluation : evaluation of products and structures, formative and certificative evaluation of learners, and initial and in-service evaluation of teachers. The field of evaluation is submitted to challenges that instil dynamism but also create contradictory forces. Challenges with regard to efficiency, rationalisation and economy. Pedagogical challenges towards plurilingualism, partial competence, autonomy, cultural awareness, as can be witnessed in the Junior and Adult Language Portfolio projects of the Council of Europe. Challenges brought about by the social function of evaluation, which gives it sway over both language learning and teacher education. It thus becomes crucial, for all types of evaluation, to specify the didactic options on which they are based. If things remain in the vague, or if didactic criteria give too much way to economic or pragmatic criteria, evaluation processes run the risk of becoming no more than mechanical red-tape.
