11. Evaluation:

Evaluation of each of the theory courses would consist of Tutor Marked Assignments and End of Course examination. The TMA constitute 30% of the Total Credit Units score. The End of Course examination is 70%. For practical courses, a practical component is introduced for scores achieved during the practical classes. This constitutes 70% of the 30% of the TMA score (30 marks) while the end of course examination constitutes 70%. As part of the evaluation mechanism, each course would be provided with 4 TMA’s out of which the best 3 would be used for the Continuous Assessments for a course. To qualify to sit for examination therefore, each student must turn at least 3 TMA’s

Each course will also be examined at the end of the semester. Course facilitators would be encouraged to provide data bank questions to the examination data bank in the School. Course coordinators and Programme leaders of the Faculty of Education who are experts in the various course areas would be given the task of selecting two sets of question papers to conform to a particular house style and format provided by the Faculties of Education and Arts Board of Examiners.  Thereafter the questions would be internally moderated by the Deans and in some cases, another staff member, before they are sent to an External Assessor for moderation who will be chosen from tertiary institutions.  Where the Faculties of Education and of Arts have no competent staff to set questions in a particular course, experts within the University would be used to prepare such question papers. The marking guides for each course as moderated by the external assessor would be used in the marking of the scripts.

It is envisaged that as the programme moves into subsequent levels of study, an additional academic staff would each year, be appointed at each level. They would be responsible for a whole range of activities of Learning and Tutoring:  admission of students into the programme; registration of students into the programme; recruitment of facilitators; editing of course materials, development of some course materials, proof reading of galleys of printed course materials; preparation of the Semester examinations, and Coordination of the marking of examination answer scripts.

 

13.Learner Support

Similar to other students receiving tertiary education, students in Distance Education require various academic and administrative support services from the University.  The existing academic support takes place presently at the various 51 Study Centres with student Counsellors and Facilitators.  The Faculty of Education/ Faculty of Arts will take steps to enhance Study facilitation by providing practical facilities for its practical based courses in selected Centres and employ more facilitators.

 

 

14.Recognition of the Programme

      The programme was approved by the Senate and has full accreditation status by the

      NUC.

 

15.Proposed Starting Date and Presentation Schedule

Following the approval of the Senate at the First Regular Meeting, the programme commenced in 2003/2004 session.

 

16.Target Students

Number of Learners: Student population will increase by 10% annually.

 

17.Student Enrolment and Projection

2,000 Students

 

18.Conclusion

In view of the decline in standards in the use and teaching of the French Language, this programme becomes quite relevant. In addition, the ability to carry on independent logical reasoning is essential for intelligent decision making. A development of aesthetic ability through creative works is expected to arise from going through this programme. In this regard, career opportunities abound for graduates of the programme in a vast number of industries. French language as a language spoken in vast majority of countries especially neighboring African countries is vital for the nation’s development and participation in the global market. The ability to reason creatively, innovatively and independently will create in the students, the ability to be solution providers in many areas of human endeavor.
