Evanechko, Peter; And Others
The first segment of a long-term educational assessment plan, for which this three-part report was compiled, called for a study that would survey the status of English language arts programs in the province of British Columbia and serve as a pilot for future assessment programs. This portion of the study presents results from the third phase of the language survey which was designed to identify the difference between the desired outcomes and the degree to which they were being met by pupils, specifically in the reading test at the grade 4 level and the written composition test taken in grades 8 and 12. Chapters consider test results according to general categories and in relation to such student characteristics as number of schools attended, number of hours of television viewed, sex, age, length of residence in Canada, and language spoken. Appendixes present statistical summaries of the test results, copies of each test, and teacher comments. (MAI)
