The purpose of this paper is to assess the effect of student contributions to the development of a computer-aided language learning program for French. As part of a scheduled fortnightly summary review session, students are directly involved in an evaluation of the effectiveness of the grammar presentations and error response handling in the lessons. Detailed student feedback on the operation of the French CALL programs is analyzed relative to its effect upon such factors as the perceived usefulness of the program, degree of voluntary student usage and learner strategies in lesson taking.
