Evaluation as part of a project life: the hypermedia CAMILLE project

Abstract : In the Computer-Aided Instruction (CAI) literature, the issue of integrating evaluation in the project life has often been recommended butmuch less reported, at least for large-scaled hypermedia environment. Indeed CAI developpers face a difficult problem because they have to make apparently contradictory viewpoints of the audience of the evaluation (teachers, administrators, research community, sponsors) coexist. This paper recalls thevarious functions and forms of evaluations adopted by the different kinds of audiences. It then reports evaluations, formative as well as summative, set upby the the European CAMILLE project teams in four countries in the course of their courseware development. It stresses the advantages, despite drawbacks and pitfalls, for the CAI developers to systematically undertake evaluations. Lastly it points out general outcomes on learning issues, which are of primary interests to teachers, trainers and educational advisors, about topics such as multimedia, learner's variability, autonomy, and effectiveness of learning with respect to language skills.
