The study is an evaluation of the English Language Teaching programme implemented in a University Department of English as a Foreign Language in Morocco. Using an eclectic-illuminative approach, and a predominantly qualitative methodology, the evaluation includes a description, analysis and tentative interpretation of the three general components of the programme: its purposes, its practices and its effects. The first part includes a) a background chapter on Higher Education in Morocco, with special reference to LL.T., b) a conceptual framework which sets out the issues involved in evaluation, more particularly the illuminative style, and c) an account of the methodology adopted for the collection, analysis and interpretation of the data. Part two is made up of three chapters: - In Chapter 4, an evaluation is proposed of the purposes of the programme as reflected in the stated or implicit overall aims of Higher Education, the aims of LL.T., and the more specific objectives of the various courses taught as part of the programme. - Chapter 5 is an evaluation of the practices of the programme. The institutional context is an important determiner of those practices and is examined as a background to student and teacher evaluation of such areas as course content (syllabuses), teaching, and student learning. The chapter concludes with an account of the participants' perceptions of the assessment system, based on an analysis of the 1984-85 examinations. - Chapter 6 deals with the long-term effects of the programme as perceived by alumni and as reflected in their description of the impact of their experience of Higher Education. The action-research dimension of the evaluation is outlined in the synthesis and implications for action and further research which constitute the conclusions to the study.
