Setting standards in the evaluation of education reflects the community's response to the call for reform in the teaching and learning process. The corpus of standards aims at creating a coherent vision on the curriculum and on the corresponding means and techniques of assessment, thus facilitating revision and improvement. This article focuses oil the specific standards for e-learning in the field of foreign languages and on their impact upon the quality of web-based education. All standards have been articulated for evaluating both student performance and curricular programs, with an emphasis on the role of evaluative measures in gathering information on which engineering university teaching can base subsequent instruction.
