An Analytical Study of Secondary Freshmen Bilingual Education and Its Effect on Academic Achievement and Attitude of Mexican American Students.
Covey, Donald David
The purposes of this study were (1) to determine whether the cognitive achievement in the academic disciplines of English, mathematics, and reading by ninth grade Mexican American students enrolled in a bilingual program was significantly different from that of ninth grade Mexican American students enrolled in a regular program; and (2) to determine if attitudes toward self, school, peers, and teachers were significantly different for ninth grade Mexican American students enrolled in a bilingual program than for ninth grade Mexican American students enrolled in a regular school program. Two hundred randomly selected ninth grade Mexican American students were administered the Iowa Test of Educational Development, Test 3 and Test 4; the Stanford Diagnostic Reading Test, Level II; and the Nebraska Attitude Inventory. Data from these tests were analyzed using a one-way analysis of variance significant at the .05 level of confidence. The findings indicated that, with the exception of mathematics, there were statistically significant differences between groups in the academic discipline of English and the area of reading. There was also a statistically significant difference between groups on attitudes toward self, school, peers, and teachers. (Author/WR)
