A Survey of the Teaching of French, Spanish, and German in Secondary Schools. Test Development Report 2.
Austin, Neale W.; Clark, John L.D.
A College Entrance Examination Board (CEEB)-sponsored survey presents data derived from the questionnaire responses of a representative sample of 5,382 secondary school seniors who took the CEEB French, Spanish, or German achievement tests during the 1965-66 academic year. Written analyses of questionnaire data, along with many supporting graphs and charts, offer information on the survey groups, the language course background of the candidates, language laboratory use, the first year of language study, language activities in Grades 7 through 12, and the candidates' appraisals of their language skills. In the detailed discussions of the data, references are made to the extent to which the principles of the audiolingual and traditional approaches have been practiced recently. Average ratings for individual classroom activities and a description of the survey design and administration comprise the two appendixes. For a related document see FL 001 321. (AF)
