This article describes the methods and rationale of the Okayama University LEC English
Program evaluation. The methods include summative measures （TOEIC and TOEIC
SW） to see if the program is helping students improve their English proficiency.
Formative measures are also being utilized to understand various aspects of students’
communicative competence and language learning to consider ways to improve the
program. These measures include surveys on learner affect（ motivation and anxiety）, a
reading strategy survey, and vocabulary tests. The results of the pretest measures will
be reported and possible implications will be discussed.
