Research on limited English proficient (LEP) students that was funded under the federal Bilingual Education Act (Title VII) and conducted from 1980-92 are summarized and reviewed. An introductory section gives an overview of the Department of Education's Office of Bilingual Education and Minority Languages Affairs and background in the Title VII research agenda, describes the goals of the literature review, the nature of the reports included, and the review process, and provides a framework based on themes in educational research in general, used for organizing and comparing the studies. Subsequent chapters summarize findings concerning students, teachers, instruction, program administration, and research methods in bilingual education. A final chapter offers an overall summary and conclusions, including recommendations for specific additional studies. Appended materials include an alphabetical listing, by author, of studies reviewed and references cited, a chronological listing of the studies, with annotations, and an overview of methodologies used in federally-funded research studies.
