An Evaluation of the English Enrichment Program (11E) for English Second-Language at Templeton Secondary School.
Edwards, Peter
A study was conducted to determine the effectiveness of the English Enrichment Program in providing special assistance to students who were experiencing difficulty with the English language. Twenty-eight students were used in the experimental group and a further twenty-six students not in the program constituted the control group. Most of the students participating in the study were originally from Hong Kong. Pre- and post-tests were given in listening, speaking, reading, and writing. The staff and students involved also gave their opinions of the service being provided by the special program. A statistical "t" test was made on the gain scores in each skill area to ascertain if there were significant differences between the experimental and the control groups. The analysis of covariance was also applied to the gains in the mean scores in reading. The findings indicated that the experimental group made greater gains in the mean score than the control group in listening and reading skills, but that the differences were not statistically significant. In both Oral and Written English, however, the experimental group did achieve statistically significant greater gains than the control group. Recommendations were made relating to further studies of this nature. (Author)
