Evaluation du programme d'etudes de francais langue seconde en immersion a la 6e annee. La comprehension orale et la production orale, 1990. Rapport Final. (Evaluation of French as a Second Language Study Program for Grade Six Immersion. Oral Comprehension and Speaking Skills, 1990. Final Report).
An evaluation of Manitoba's French immersion programs at the levels of grades 3, 6, and 9 focused on program effectiveness in teaching listening comprehension and speech skills. The results for grade 6 are presented here. The first section describes the framework of the immersion curriculum and the listening and oral skills targeted in it. The second section outlines the study's design, including the evaluation instrument used, its pilot testing, sampling, data collection, evaluators, scoring, and evaluation criteria. The third section presents results and interpretation, and the final section offers conclusions and nine recommendations for program design, classroom implementation, and program administration. It was found that objectives of the oral comprehension and speaking skills components of the French-as-a-Second-Language curriculum were adequately achieved. However, four of the objectives used for the evaluation were judged unsatisfactory: (1) expressions from context; (2) motivates others to act; (3) uses precise terms; and (4) uses appropriate grammatical structures. There was a higher level of achievement in oral comprehension than in speaking skills. The evaluation instrument is appended. (MSE)
