All project activities will be evaluated through a common evaluation format that will be developed at the initial project meeting and maintained by the coordinating school. Evaluations will be shared by email and summaries of the evaluation documents will be posted on the project website. Each activity will be assessed individually, where appropriate adjustments will be made to improve the quality of intercultural dialogue between the participants.
Activities will be evaluated by pupil and questionnaires. These will be designed by the pupils and will focus on where activities have been successful as well as where activities have encountered difficulties and will need developing or adjusting.
Evaluations of the project will also be posted onto the online project newspaper. Comments can be added to the newspaper articles by all pupils, teachers and parents. The newspaper and web site will be access points for all participants to have instant access to information and evaluations of the project. Members of the local communities will be encouraged to view these online resources and make relevant contributions.
The impact of the partnership will also be evaluated through consultations with parents and the wider community, e.g through questionnaires, face to face meetings and on an annual Comenius Day. Members of our local communities will be invited to discuss the project with the participating pupils and teachers. For example parents, librarians and local council members will be invited to a Comenius Forum event where they can question the pupils about the project activities and the impact it has had on them and their learning.
The final project meeting will produce a final evaluation report that will discuss the impact of the project on the pupils and their communities, suggest successful ways to encourage further intercultural dialogue and offer advice to other institutions and communities wishing to set up such partnerships.
