2007 ESL Survey: 2007 English as a Second Language Student Outcomes Survey Report
Ministry of Advanced Education
The "2007 English as a Second Language (ESL) Student Outcomes Survey" interviewed students who took English language training at a British Columbia (BC) public post-secondary institution between September 1, 2005 and August 31, 2006. The survey included former students from 17 different post-secondary institutions. Survey interviews were conducted between August and November 2007; 1,821 former ESL students completed the survey. The first part of the report focuses on former ESL students and their demographic characteristics. Following sections provide background information about ESL students' levels of previous education, reasons or goals for enrolling in ESL, and sources of funding while taking ESL training. This is followed by respondents' ratings of skill improvement and other aspects of their overall training experience. The final sections of the report focus on outcomes: what students did after they left ESL training: further education, employment, and social adaptation. Two appendixes are included: (1) Survey Methodology; and (2) Questionnaire. (Contains 16 footnotes.) [This report was funded by the Ministry of Advanced Education.]
