Linguistic Capacity Index.
Brengelman, Frederick H.; Manning, John C.
Designed to be used as a measure of English language readiness to assist the classroom teacher in grouping native Spanish-speaking pupils for English language instruction, the index may also be used to assess pupil achievement in learning English as a foreign language. Based on a contrastive analysis of English and Spanish grammar and phonology, the Linguistic Capacity Index consists of three 20-item sections on vocabulary recognition, contrastive phonology, and contrastive development. [This document is one of those reviewed in The Research Instruments Project (TRIP) monograph "Measures for Research and Evaluation in the English Language Arts" to be published by the Committee on Research of the National Council of Teachers of English in cooperation with the ERIC Clearinghouse on Reading and Communication Skills. A TRIP review which precedes the document lists its category (English as a Second Language), title, authors, date, and age range (primary), and describes the instrument's purpose and physical characteristics.] (RB)
