Sixth-Grade Performance of Former Limited-English Proficient Pupils Reclassified to Fluent English Proficient. Publication No. 511.
Wilde, Jeffrey; And Others
This study examines the academic performance of 6th-grade pupils who participated as Spanish-speaking limited English proficient (LEP) pupils in the district's bilingual education program; were reclassified as fluent-English proficient (FEP); and are now enrolled in all-English classes. The investigation was designed to answer the following questions: (1) How are 6th-grade reclassified pupils doing, as a group, in all-English classes? (2) What are the characteristics of reclassified FEP pupils who did well on the CTBS/U and have positive attitudes toward school? and (3) How do teachers view the English skills of their 6th-grade reclassified FEPs? The instruments used in the study, including student and teacher interview forms, are appended. (JL)
