ESL Students in California Public Higher Education. ICAS ESL Task Force Report
Academic Senate for California Community Colleges
This report responds to some of the key questions raised by educators and legislators about ESL practices, programs and support services across the three California postsecondary systems: the California Community Colleges (CCC), the California State University (CSU), and the University of California (UC). While this report was produced to address the particular concerns of the California Community College Board of Governors, the concerns of the board are shared by a great many others, both within the CCC system and beyond it. This report is based on an online survey, statistical data from education web pages and the collective knowledge of the task force members. The online survey used to gather information for this report was designed in extensive consultation with the director of the University of California, Santa Barbara, Social Science Survey Center. For each college and University campus, the ESL task force identified and contacted respondents whom they believed would be qualified to answer the survey questions. Faculty and administrators who responded included professors, instructors, lecturers and program directors or coordinators. The findings of this survey support the belief of many educators involved in ESL and English programs that the identification, assessment and placement of ESL learners is a critical issue on campuses. Appended are: (1) Survey Instrument; (2) Survey Respondent Information; and (3) Campus Profiles. A glossary is included. (Contains 7 tables and 6 footnotes.)
