Development Associates, Inc., Arlington, VA.
The Special Issues Analysis Center (SIAC) provides technical assistance to the Department of Education's Office of Bilingual Education and Minority Languages Affairs (OBEMLA) in its mission of serving limited-English-proficient (LEP) students. The SIAC carries out data gathering and analysis, research, and other support services to inform OBEMLA decision making. The annual report for fiscal year 1992, its first year of operation, consists of five volumes. The first gives an overview of activities and task accomplishment, and implications for second-year planning. The second volume contains copies of "short turnaround reports" based on analyses of Title VII application data and other data related to LEP students submitted in year one. Volume III includes three SIAC products: a summary analysis of Title VII grant program annual survey reports; the draft of an accountability system for a special alternative instruction program; and the draft of an accountability system for an educational personnel training program. The fourth volume consists of a literature review of federally funded studies related to LEP students, and the final volume contains a focus group report on active learning instructional models for LEP students.
