Bilingual School Readiness Evaluation in English and Spanish. Preliminary Teacher Edition.
Lee, Marianne, Ed.
This document is an examination, formulated by the Council of Mexican-American Affairs Head Start Bilingual Education Committee, designed to correlate the experiences in preschool education of the children tested to the educational background generally expected of a child entering a typical American public school. It is designed for administration by the classroom teacher, at the beginning of kindergarten or first grade; or at the end of Head Start of any other preschool program. The test booklet is prefaced by an instructional information section that includes an introduction, general instructions, information on recording and scoring, specific instructions, and a bibliography. The test is composed of three parts: Part I deals with selected concept areas; self identification, motor development and academic development. Part II consists of an observational checklist to be completed by the teacher after at least 10 periods of observation, and Part III tests language preference. This evaluation was designed to allow for cultural differences and can be used with monolingual as well as bilingual children. (Author/SB)
