Summary Report on the National Assessment Survey of Title VII ESEA Basic Project Directors' and Teachers' Needs for the Products and Services of the National Network of Centers for Bilingual Education.
Reifle, Shelia R.; Goldsmith, Ross P.
Results of a 1977 survey of a national sample of Title VII bilingual education project directors and teachers are presented. The survey was designed to assess their needs for materials development and technical assistance in order to aid network centers in making decisions on which types of materials, training, and services should be emphasized. All of the approximately 425 Title VII Basic projects were sent questionnaires, and 170 (about 40%) responded. Information is provided on language groups represented in the survey sample, grade levels and subject areas, teachers' experience in the profession, the availability and usefulness of various types of instructional equipment in the bilingual education classroom, the importance of information received/not received from a list of sources, the value of information on each of seven topics, training needs, needs for testing measures, the need for Spanish/English bilingual instructional materials, and teachers' problems with materials.
