Foreign Language Student Opinion Survey: Questionnaire and Summary.
Edmonds School District 15, Lynnwood, WA.
In May 1968, foreign language students in the Edmonds School District were surveyed regarding their attitudes toward foreign language study. The results made it apparent that more and better foreign language courses had to be offered to attract and hold students. Between 1968 and 1971 the foreign language program in the district was expanded, and in May 1971, the present survey was conducted. A total of 2,253 responses were tabulated, representing approximately 75 percent of all students enrolled in foreign language courses in the district at the time of the survey. Some of the observations and tentative conclusions of this survey were as follows: (1) attempts to broaden the program had been successful; (2) attempts to attract students on the basis of intrinsic value of foreign language study rather than college requirements had been successful; (3) because foreign language classes were opened to all students, not only the college bound, the number of negative responses increased; and (4) the continuous progress program was endorsed. A copy of the questionnaire and tabulated response data are provided. (LG)
