Examples
 

Here are some examples of qualitative evaluations in several areas of literacy:

    • What was learned?

  • Attitudes and achievements of the learners

    • What do the learners think about the classes, the teachers, and the materials?
    • Do they think the literacy classes made a difference in their lives? If yes, what kind of difference?
  • Selection, training, attitude, and ability of teachers and other literacy personnel

    • Did the teachers do a good job of communicating the new information?
    • Did they respect and support the learners?
