Evaluation in Distance Learning

Evaluation in the sense of "the systematic investigation of the worth or merit of some object" has several meanings within education. Its most common purpose is to grade and classify students, to sort out the successes from the failures. However, here we are concerned with "Programme Evaluation", where the focus is on how well a particular educational programme, curriculum or teaching method works, how it might be improved and how it compares with alternatives.
