Northwest Regional Educational Lab., Portland, OR. Office of Research and Evaluation Services.
Results of a national mail survey of regional, state, and local agencies administering English language training programs for refugees, the first phase of a larger study of the training programs, are reported. An introductory section outlines the survey and procedure. The responses and statistical analyses are summarized, and some data tables are provided. The responses came from 8 regional, 36 state, and 232 local agencies and concerned four topics: (1) the nature and extent of English language training for refugees, including the characteristics of local service providers and their programs; (2) the resources and costs involved in that training, including the sources of funds and the ways they are allocated; (3) the characteristics of the refugees receiving training; (4) factors relating to program quality and success. Recommendations based on the findings are made to four groups: local service providers, state level refugee program administrators, national policymakers, and orgnizations engaged in research and evaluation. Appended materials include the three questionnaires sent to local, regional, and state administrators and coordinators; normative tables of key English language training program characteristics; further notes on the survey methodology; and tables comparing the results from the 15 states with the largest refugee populations to results for all programs.(MSE)
