An Evaluation of the Summer School Programme at the Secondary Level, Vancouver, B. C. 1970.
Reid, Marilyn J.
The Secondary Summer School Programme encompassed four areas. Three of these, Regular Credit Courses, Advanced Credit Courses, and Language Assistance Courses, are considered in this report. Of those students attending Regular Credit Courses, 82% received a "Pass" mark and 18% received a "Fail" mark at the end of the summer programme. Participating students received, on the average, somewhat higher grades in the following January than they received in the preceding courses in June. Almost half of the students attending the Advanced Credit Courses received an "A" or a "B" as a final mark while only 8% failed. Grades received by participating students the following January were, on the average, slightly lower than those received in the preceding courses in June. The English of the"New Canadian" students in the Britannia Language Assistance Programme was, on the average, at the Grade Four level during the summer. The following February (1971), teachers considered that the English of most of these students was moderately acceptable, neither wholly satisfactory nor wholly unsatisfactory. There would seem to be a need to review present programmes with a view to providing more suitable schooling for "New Canadians". (Author)
