Final Evaluation Report for Colorado [City] Bilingual Education Program, Colorado [City] Independent School District, Colorado City, Texas.
Simmons, Raymond S.
The final evaluation report for the Colorado City Bilingual Education Program is presented in this paper. The project was directed to kindergarten children from low-income disadvantaged homes; of 63 participants, 53 were Spanish-speaking children and 10 were monolingual English-speaking children. Project staff consisted of a bilingual teacher, a native English-speaking teacher, 3 bilingual teacher aides, and a bilingual director. The project, located at Kelley Elementary School, was evaluated in terms of its administrative component, instructional program, and community support. Pre- and post-test data were obtained using the following instruments: (1) Short Test of Educational Abilities, (2) Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test, (3) Tests of Basic Experiences, and (4) Check-List of English Words. The greatest weakness of the project was the evaluation design used, which was not an integral part of the instructional program. The greatest strength was the project's uniqueness of size, which permitted individual contact with all personnel. Included in the report are tables of test results. (NQ)
