Commins, Nancy L.; Miramontes, Ofelia B.
American Educational Research Journal, v26 n4 p443-72 Win 1989
The linguistic performance of four Hispanic bilingual fifth- and sixth-grade students perceived to have limited language abilities in English and Spanish was studied. Results indicate that the organization of instruction limited students' abilities to show their competence and that teachers interpreted this as a lack of conceptual ability. (SLD)
