A Descriptive Study of Graduates of an Adult English-as-a-Second-Language Program.
Bruckner, Judith E.
Students who received the certificate of completion of level six at the Institute for Intensive English at Union County College in 1985-1988 were surveyed. The response rate for 310 surveys was 96%. The survey gathered information on the demographic characteristics and educational backgrounds of the students on entry to the institute, their main objectives for enrolling, their level of satisfaction with the services delivered, and the effects of attendance on graduates' employment and educational aspirations. Results show that most members of the diverse group had achieved their objectives for studying English and were satisfied with their educational experiences at the institute. Of those responding to questions about their jobs, a significant majority felt that studying at the institute had improved their employability. Almost 90% believed their interest in continuing their education was increased by their experience at the institute. A bibliography of over 50 citations and the survey instrument are appended. (MSE)
