Abstract:
Background and Aim
Although evaluation has been considered as an inseparable part of education, evaluating higher education curriculum in most of the university programs has not been adequately investigated. The purpose of the present study is to investigate the quality of general English language course curriculum and English language learning based on Tyler’s Model from the students’ perspective at Birjand University of Medical Sciences.
Materials and Methods
This study was descriptive – analytic. The participants were students having General English course at Birjand University of Medical Sciences in 2016. The sampling methods on Krejcie and Morgan table were 180 students and they were selected by available sampling method. Data collection was done through a researcher-made questionnaire including 28 items. The validity of the questionnaire was confirmed by experts in medical and English language education and the reliability was estimated as 82% based on Cronbach's alpha. Data were analyzed in SPSS software using descriptive (frequency and percentage) and inferential statistics (one sample T-test).
Results
The results indicated that the experimental mean score was higher than the theoretical one, and there was a significant difference (p < 0.05) between the two means in three aspects of ‘content’, ‘teaching methods’, and ‘evaluation’ in general English course. Also, the experimental mean in the aspect of ‘course goals’ was less than the theoretical mean and there was a significant difference between them (p>0.05).
Conclusion
Based on the results of this study, the goals of general English language course should be reevaluated so it can satisfy the students’ needs.
