High School and Beyond: Issues Regarding the Language File, Bilingual Participation and Tests.
Hirano-Nakanishi, Marsha J.
The use of the data files contained in the High School and Beyond (HSB) research project is discussed. The comments are based on an analysis of the HSB material and are specifically directed at the language file, high school bilingual program participation, and HSB tests. In an evaluation of the language file, the question of whether Hispanic language minorities are adequately represented is addressed. Regarding bilingual program participation, the question of which HSB survey questions are most applicable in ascertaining such participation is considered. Finally, the adequacy of the HSB cognitive tests is assessed. (RW)
