Project Compugrafia.LEP. Final Evaluation Profile, 1991-92. OREA Report.
Project Compugrafia.LEP (Limited English Proficiency) was designed to provide supplementary services and materials to existing bilingual special education programs in nine elementary schools in the Bronx (New York). The 471 project students were mildly to moderately disabled children from low-income Spanish-speaking families. The components of the program included instruction in English as a Second Language (ESL), Native Language Arts (NLA), computer-based skills, and career education. The project involved the parents in order to help them understand bilingual and special education procedures, and parents were also offered ESL instruction. The project also planned a broad range of staff development activities which focused on techniques of instruction, new curriculum, and utilization of computers as teaching aids. This 1991-92 evaluation report describes staffing, implementation, and outcomes. The project met its objectives for career education, curriculum development, staff development, and computer skills, but failed to meet objectives for ESL, NLA, and parent involvement. A brief case history concludes the report, and appendixes describe data collection and analysis procedures and list instructional materials used in the project. (JDD)
