The Effects of Various Types of Delays on College Foreign Language Achievement.
Beanblossom, Gary F.
Language history profiles of 2,367 students receiving grades in freshman and sophomore level foreign language courses in French, German, and Spanish at the University of Washington during the autumn quarter of 1968 were identified and compared. The language history profiles were categorized by types of delays and interruptions experienced by students as they progressed from high school to college language studies. Discussion of types of delays, courses, distribution of groups by language, hypothesis and method, and results are included. Differences in grade point average (G.P.A.) between four groups for each of 16 language courses are presented in three tables. (Author/RL).
