Evaluation of the Flexible Laboratory Instruction Program II.
An evaluation was made of the Flexible Laboratory Instruction Program II, a New York State project for the development and utilization of audiovisual modules to assist Spanish-speaking students in their basic accounting courses at Bronx Community College of the City University of New York. A description of the program and evaluation activities and data concerning student reaction and student usage of the modules is presented. Student reactions to the English versions of the sample modules were positive; responses of most of the 23 students indicated that they felt the materials were easily understood and would be helpful. The two Spanish modules were not well received by the Hispanic students. Sixty-three modules were completed and available for student use during the fall 1977 semester. Of the 114 students who borrowed these modules from the college library, 51 were Spanish-surnamed. Synchronization of the modules with regular course work is suggested. (SW)
