An Interim Report on a Continuous Progress Program in French I and Spanish I.
Glatthorn, Allan A.; And Others
At Abington High Schools' North Campus, Abington, Pennsylvania, beginning French and Spanish students were grouped according to ability after the first marking period in an effort to meet their individual needs. A summary of the project shows that the grades of ability-grouped students tended to improve and that there is no clear correspondence between ability and pace. Recommendations include a study of the possibility of summer language courses to close the gap between ability groups, a review of pacing and grading problems, and a continuing of the program. Ten tables are included to compare grouped and ungrouped classes in grades and progress. (See related document FL 000 882.) (AF)
