Evaluation of Foreign Language in the Elementary School.
Wantagh Public Schools, NY.
These materials attempt to illuminate some of the effects of the Wantagh FLES program on high school language work and on the attitudes of students, parents, teachers, and administrators. Analyses are made of the performances of Wantagh High School French students on the Modern Language Association (MLA) Cooperative Foreign Language Tests for levels 2-4 and of the foreign language "histories" of seniors. The major part of the evaluation presents summaries of responses to various opinion surveys--(1) high school graduates to the public school language program, (2) parents to the FLES program, (3) teachers to the FLES program, and (4) school administrators to the New York State Education Department Cooperative Review Instrument. Some program revisions are recommended, and data tables and graphs are provided. (AF)
