Oregon State University researchers study English language learners: By the numbers
from The Oregonian
Oregon State University is working with the Oregon Department of Education and WedEd, an education research nonprofit, on a study of the academic performance of current and former English language learners to determine what type of instruction best supports their achievement. The two-year study begins Aug. 1, financed by $400,000 in federal funds and another $29,000 from other sources. Students are classified as English language learners when they start school unable to comprehend English. The students are reclassified once they are deemed proficient.
