Final Evaluation Report on Detroit's Bilingual Individualized Instructional Management System Project, 1978-1979.
Moore, JoAnne E.
The Bilingual Individualized Instructional Management System operated in one Detroit (Michigan) public school. Materials and assistance were also offered to one parochial school. The approach employed a comprehensive and individualized learning system to provide concentrated instruciton to 150 children in grades Kindergarten through five who were experiencing learning difficulties as a result of their limited ability to speak English. The children in grades one through five spent half their time in bilingual classes and half in a class with an English speaking teacher. The instructional system allowed each child to work at his/her own pace. Additional program components included inservice teacher education and parent outreach programs. A performance evaluation indicated that nine of the 14 program objectives were achieved during the 1978-1979 school year. Those objectives which were not met evidenced progress toward achievement. Relevant data and testing instruments are appended. (Author/MK)
