Evaluation of the Bilingual Kindergarten Program, St. Joseph Elementary School, Town of Mount Royal. Second Progress Report.
Buteau, M.; Gougeon, H.
As part of an on-going evaluation study of the bilingual program at St. Joseph Elementary School in Quebec, Canada, this document reports on its operation during the 1980-81 school year. During this year, pupils in grade one followed a modified social studies program through French, while pupils in kindergarten followed a revised edition of the bilingual kindergarten program. Progress of the two programs was monitored informally through class visits and periodic meetings with teachers, administrators, and parent representatives. Verbal and written comments on objectives, activities, and material were solicited from each teacher as well as from two outside consultants. The focus of the evaluation, however, was on students' performance. A major portion of the report is devoted to a detailed description of testing instruments, and to the analysis and discussion of test results. Both standardaized and non-standardized tests were used, and their results are documented in the "Tables" section at the end of the report. Questionnaires and forms addressed to teachers and parents are appended. (MES)
