An outcomes-based Afrikaans literature module for non-mother-tongue speakers was evaluated by the students as well as outside role players at Vista University, Bloemfontein before its integration with the University of the Free State. Evaluation tools included reflection cards, letters, questionnaires and interviews. The specific outcomes of this language module served as criteria for the evaluation of students' portfolios, community service learning, learning material, learning and teaching methods, assessment and language proficiency in authentic contexts. The results and conclusions of this exercise were used in the review of a literature module for the same year group. The latter module is currently being evaluated by means of a questionnaire (students) and an internal moderator (educationalist). The evaluation of this module with a view to planning for improvement and launching a project on module evaluation is an attempt to respond to the demands for excellence in teaching and learning, innovation and the challenges that confront South African communities regarding language proficiency.
