Evaluation of the Bilingual Kindergarten and Follow Up Programs: St. Joseph Elementary School, Town of Mount Royal. Third Progress Report.
Buteau, M.; Gougeon, H.
The third progress report is presented on the evaluation of a bilingual kindergarten program and a social studies follow-up program in grades 1 and 2. The focus is on the first cohort, presently in grade 2, on a second cohort in grade 1, and on a third cohort in kindergarten. The purpose of the program was to initiate French instruction in kindergarten in order to prepare students for the integrated social studies program and for eventual immersion in grade 6. The three parts of the report focus on the assessment of pupil achievement; participants, instruments and testing procedures; test results; and evaluation of program objectives. The extensive analyses indicate that pupil progress in content knowledge, in English, and in French was significant. The students had acquired general notions and knowledge in social studies while learning as much English and substantially more French than the pupils following the regular English program. From the point of view of parents and teachers, the program was considered advantageous. Statistics, sample questionnaires, and testing instruments are appended. (AMH)
