Region One Bilingual Education Project. 1971-1972 Final Evaluation Report.
Education Service Center Region 1, Edinburg, TX.
A 4-year program for Mexican American children who have little or no knowledge of English has been established by the Region One Education Service Center in Texas. Designed to enroll students at the kindergarten level and carry them through 3rd grade, the program's components were Spanish reading, English as a second language (ESL), transitional English reading, and social education. The field testing of these programs comprised the objectives for 1971-72. Of the 124 objectives listed, only the product objectives which pertained directly to student achievement were evaluated in this report. Results of the Spanish Reading and Social Education End-of-Program Tests indicated that 80% of the students attained the desired objective, a score of 80% on the tests. Level I and Level II ESL program results indicated that if the students in the experimental group and control group had all had comparable pre-test scores, the post-test scores of the experimental group would have been significantly higher than those of the control group. The analysis of the final achievement test indicated that the results were within acceptable limits of the objective for the Transitional English Reading Program. Appendixes include the bilingual project staff, materials and equipment for project components, and status of objectives for 1971-72. A related document is ED 051 955. (Several pages may be light.)
