Etude de textes informatifs oraux et ecrits d'eleves francophones et d'eleves allophones du primaire et du secondaire frequentant des ecoles pluriethniques au Quebec (A Study of Oral and Written Productions of Francophone and Allophone Primary and Secondary School Students in Multiethnic Schools in Quebec).
De Koninck, Zita
A study examined the characteristics of the oral and written production of French-speaking and minority-language students in elementary and secondary multiethnic schools in Montreal (Quebec), with the purpose of assessing the relevance of student evaluation methods. Subjects were 248 elementary and 231 secondary students, categorized in 9 ethnic or language groups (Haiitian, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, Greek, Asian, Slavic, Quebecois, and others). Results show little difference in the discursive and lexical aspects of the productions. However, the language-minority students' productions contain linguistic features that reflect second language learning strategies. The existing criteria for evaluating students' writing and speech is found adequate, to the extent that this study could determine. (MSE)
