Evaluation of the Bilingual Project of Harlandale Independent School District, San Antonio, Texas, in the First, Second, and Third Grades of Four Elementary Schools During 1968-69 School Year.
Pryor, Guy C.
The document is an evaluation of the Bilingual Instructional Project in the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grades of 4 elementary schools in the Harlandale Independent School District, San Antonio, Texas, during the 1968-69 school term. Evaluation of the 1st grade included a mental ability and readiness test--pretest and posttest. At the 2nd grade level, the Science Research Associates Achievement Test in Reading was given as a pretest and the Inter-American Series was given as a posttest. For the 3rd grade, the Science Research Associated Achievement Test in Reading was given as a pretest and posttest. Eight conclusions are given--e.g., there was no discernible difference in language achievement by 2nd and 3rd grade pupils between the bilingual and the control groups as measured by reading tests in English. The 11 recommendations encourage better organization, better planning, leadership that is more readily available, closer support by the principals, and more materials. A closer evaluator contact with the program is also recommended. (For related documents, see RC 007 266, 267.) (FF)
