User Evaluation of Chinese Teaching Materials : Evaluation Factors and Two-way Model of Quality
Chinese teaching material
two-way model of quality
Recently Chinese learning has becoming more and more popular wih people around the world. To meet the need of Chinese learners, we need to cultivate suitable teaching material. But, most teaching of materials have been edited, revised, and selected by the editors and the scholars without consulting the consumers, i.e. the teacher and their students. The aim of this study focused on the analysis of Chinese teaching material evaluation factors using the two-way model of quality. The questionnaires were filled in by both the students and teachers from five Chinese Teaching Centers of Taiwan. The research findings are as follows: (1) Teachers and students’ evaluation factors significantly different. Teachers emphasize language skills, while students care more about fulfilling their communication needs. (2) Younger and less experienced teachers are more demanding on the quality of Chinese teaching materials, because more factors are required for them to be satisfied. (3) Students from North-East Asia care more about fulfilling their learning needs, for this item is evaluated as the “Must-be”factor. Students from South-East Asia are satisfied with added Pinyin, practical language texts, various topics and grammar exercises. Students from western countries are satisfied with added Pinyin, and the right level of difficulties. Students from Africa demand more factors for a textbook, such as the appropriate expression for a social occasion, i+1 input, etc. (4) Students of math and science background think added Pinyin, appropriate length of the text, and reasonable price is a must in a textbook. Students of law or business background demand more satisfying factors for a textbook, such as arranging the teaching materials by the four skills, fulfilling their learning needs, added Pinyin, etc. It is suggested that textbooks should be compiled according to the factors that satisfy teachers and students of different background.
