Evaluation of California's Educational Services to Limited and Non-English Speaking Students; Volume I, Final Report.
Jones, Earl; And Others
Designed to assist California policy and decision makers with planning to meet the future educational needs of limited-English speaking (LES) and non-English speaking (NES) students, this study was undertaken: (1) to describe and analyze the implementation of all areas of the legislatively required services to LES/NES children, and the structures which support those services, particularly in terms of instructional strategies, financial resources and utilization, teacher preparation, and district policies; (2) to relate these implementation factors with measures of program effectiveness through analysis of student achievement and the satisfaction of students, parents, teachers, aides, and administrators with the bilingual instructional services, and thus determine the relationship between program implementation and impact on children and others involved in the program; and (3) to analyze procedures for the state and local language census of LES/NES children and examine the instruments used for placement, including the materials and procedures used to train test administrators and in the reporting of results. Volume I of this final report contains the full narrative and the more important tables. Volume II is the Executive Summary. Volume III contains the instruments, some technical explanatory materials, and many of the complex tables not included in Volume I. (Author/RL)
