Program evaluation in education, Curriculum-based assessment
This analysis revealed that the group of students enrolled in FRINQ who report speaking a language other than English in their homes is made up of immigrants, US born and international students who speak a wide range of languages. These students are likely to be first-generation college students and work fewer hours than their peers. Academically, writing is expressed as the top area where non-native speakers need support and they also express a need for help finding employment. In order to better understand the experiences and challenges for students who speak a language other than English at home, further research will focus on subgroups within this population in order to identify students who can use additional support.
