This paper reports on a blended learning evaluation of English vocabulary systems (Gruba et al., 2016) at a midsize Japanese university as part of an Assurance of Learning (AOL) initiative. Methods include meso-level evidence gathering and micro-level comparison between two English classes—one using English Central and one Word Engine. The results include emerging categories for comparison and how some of these programs compare side-by-side.
