Summary

This paper describes the activities to develop norms for the interpretation of tests designed to indicate proficiency in English for Amerindian children attending grades 3 through 6 in the Bureau of Indian Affairs' schools. The objectives of the test battery are described. The first is to identify the Amerindian child who needs special training in English and to determine the placement in the proper level of intensity of English training. The second purpose is to provide the classroom teacher with specific linguistic information for each child in each language group which could be used as a diagnostic guide for teaching methods or materials. A third objective is to provide a means of assessing the relative merit of various English programs. These objectives require that certain decisions be made which can be classified as placement, diagnostic, and evaluative. The norming group consisted of 7,547 children. Results of this second phase in the evaluation project are discussed. For the companion document see ED034971. (RL)
