Auto-évaluation et apprenants d'anglais adultes : critères et sources de variabilité

Abstract : This action-research aims at establishing links between the variability of self-assessment criteria and certain individual characteristics. Its background includes the autonomization framework, the external assessment framework ans self-directed learning as implemented in a Higher-Education Institution for Engineering. Categorization of the learners according to their learning styles is based on differential psychology. The research design postulates, first, a difference between external and internal assessment criteria and, secondly, the influence of individual characteristics on the choice of self assessment criteria. The data, collected during interviews, provide (1) the list of self-assessment criteria used by the learners in the four skills, among which non-traditional criteria, (2) the means for categorizing the learners according to seven variables: (i) sex, (ii) educational origin, (iii) experience in the use of English, (iv) experience in the learning of other languages, Cv) the sociocultural environment, (vi) the level acquired in English and (vii) the learning style. The whole of the data has been processed by the STAT-ITCF software. The first analysis provides the weight of each criterion and its links with the individual characteristics, and the possibility of grading the criteria; the second one draws the learners' profiles as a result of the individual variables and establishes links between these profiles and the choice of the criteria; the third one processes ail the criteria and the seven personal characteristics. The variability hypothesis is confirmed in the case of five out of the seven variables; the variability observed reaches about 33% for certain links between the choice of the criteria and individual characteristics.
