Computer Focused Russian Bilingual Instruction Program, 1985-1986. OEA Evaluation Report.
New York City Board of Education, Brooklyn, NY. Office of Educational Evaluation.
A New York City program to develop English-language skills, academic skills, native language skills, computer literacy, and career awareness among 250 limited-English-proficient native speakers of Russian in 6 high schools is evaluated in this report. The program was run in both public and private high schools. Quantitative analysis of student achievement data indicates that program objectives were met in English language skills and computer literacy, and content-area achievement was high in comparison to citywide averages, but native language achievement did not meet the program objective. Recommendations for program improvement are to provide students with more computer experience, make computer programs more suitable to the Russian bilingual students' needs, and review and revise program objectives based on students' actual ability to perform. The appendices include statistical analyses of student test scores. (MSE)
