Providence Title VII Bilingual Education Program. Final Evaluation Report.
DiBiasio, Guy N.; Sullivan, Richard E.
This is the final report on instructional and management evaluation of the Providence Bilingual Project at Fox Point High School for 1971. Part 1 states the hypotheses which underlie the data analysis, describes testing methods and results, and outlines recommendations which resulted from the evaluation. A section on process evaluation indicates that the instruction process seemed to be going very well, with competent teachers using teaching aides and audiovisual materials effectively. A teacher questionnaire indicates satisfaction with the Brown Institute, but stresses the need for curriculum development and for a uniform program of literacy teaching. The lack of native speaker fluency among teachers is noted. The administering of a personality test and an intelligence test is described, along with special problems, score analysis, and recommendations. Part 2, management analysis, discusses the planning, installing, operating, communicating, and evaluation aspects of the project and deals with the general impact on parents, community, teachers, students, and other participating institutions. An appendix contains a monitoring system which defines management responsibility, bi-weekly project activity reports, as well as other illustrative materials. (AM)
