Patterns of Program Use: An Examination of Installation Data on the English Language and Concepts Program for Spanish Speaking Pupils (LCS).
Molina, Huberto; Hanson, Ralph A.
This paper describes an inquiry which answers two questions regarding the installation of a new instructional program: (1) What are the patterns of implementation displayed when a new program is installed across the country? Implementation in this context is described in terms of the selection and placement of learners, pacing of instruction and pupil proficiency after instruction. (2) In view of departure from recommended placement and program exit criteria, what are the implications concerning the institutionalizing of children in underachievement roles? The vehicle for this research is the installation of the English Language and Concepts Program for Spanish Speaking Pupils (LCS). (Author)
