California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento. Office of Bilingual Bicultural Education.
This bilingual program quality review instrument is intended as a guide for school district personnel to design and improve bilingual education programs. It can be used for the following purposes: as an on-site review instrument to provide formative evaluation input about language-minority group programs; as a device for collecting information at the project, school, and classroom levels to identify current practices and promising developments in bilingual education; and as a vehicle for promoting research-based standards for the operation of bilingual education programs. The instrument consists of a bilingual program profile form for recording program enrollment information, funding sources, teacher credential status, and teaching aide usage information; operational definitions of terminology used in the instrument and its documentation; and a form for recording information about features related to program quality, including primary language development, second-language acquisition, classroom management, staffing and staff development, and family services. Background information about the instrument, its development, and its application, and a six-page bibliography are included. (MSE)
