Problems of Measurement With the Bilingual Preschool Child

pp. 36—40

The recent emphasis in American society on preschool education has resulted in the development of educational techniques appropriate to the early childhood years. One of the difficulties faced by researchers has been the selection of measures for evaluating the effects of these programs, as well as for predicting ability level, future achievement, and remedial needs. This article reports efforts to resolve some of the difficulty of evaluation, as well as to gain an understanding of bilingual interference during the early stages of learning for a specific bilingual group - Mexican-Americans.
