Roberts, A. O. H. (1976). Foibles and Fallacies in Educational Evaluation. Federal assistance for special educational programs makes necessary the regular study of evaluations of thousands of innovations in compensatory education, bilingual education, and reading programs. The results are reported to the President and to Congress. However, investigating organizations find only a few programs with adequate evidence and thousands with faulty evaluation designs. Some of the most common faults are discussed, with examples. There are other factors which lower hopes. If greater numbers with real evidence could be found, knowledge would increase even without an increase in the number of exemplary programs.   [More]  Descriptors: Achievement Gains, Analysis of Covariance, Compensatory Education, Criterion Referenced Tests

Rodriguez, Adriana Pellicari (1988). Why Do We Want To Learn English? Ask Us!. A study examined the relationship between self-concept and motivation to learn English among Puerto Rican upper elementary school children from low socioeconomic status families. Fifty-seven native Spanish-speaking students attending urban bilingual education programs rated themselves on a pictorial self-concept scale and responded to a Likert-type scale of motivation to learn English. Analysis of the findings indicates that the students have more open attitudes toward the acquisition of English when they view the second language for personal gain or achievement of success rather than for total integration into mainstream society.
