Types of Text book Analysis

Types of Text book Analysis Prior to the analysis of text books, it is necessary to con duct a preliminary analysis of the context in which the material is going to be used and a survey of the learners, needs. This need originates from the realisation that there is a distinctive line be tween the analysis of the textbook and its valuation. According to McGrath (2002, p. 22) “analysis is a process which leads to an objective, verifiable description whereas evaluation involves the making of judgments”. Evaluation is feasible when a comparison is made between the descriptions of a context with the descriptions of the textbook. Therefore, the analysis of textbooks should be made by looking at specific required elements or set of criteria.

Evaluation of teaching materials can be divided in three types according to the literature in the field of English Language Teach ing.

1. Pre-use or predictive evaluation by Ellis, 1997; McGrath, 2002; Tomlinson, 2003, which involves making decisions about the potential value of materials for their users.

2. In-use or whilst-use evaluation by McGrath, 2002; Tomlinson, 2003, which involves measuring the value of materi als while using them or observing them as being used.

3. Post use evaluation by McGrath, 2002; Tomlinson, 2003. According to McGrath, measures the actual effect of the materials on the users. As Tomlinson (2003, p. 25) states post use evalua tion can measure the actual outcome of the use of the materials and thus provide the data on which reliable decisions about the use, adaptation or replacement of materials can be made.
