Abstract or Summary
  • The central focus of the present study was to assess the International Program (IP) and the Regular Thai Program at Satit Kaset in Bangkok, Thailand. The problem involved the gathering of both statistical and survey information from IP students, parents, and teachers in Grades 1-4 at the school. The primary intent of the statistical portion of the study was to describe and contrast the IP and Regular Thai classrooms in terms of achievement in mathematics, Thai and English language arts, social studies, and science. Questionnaire and interview information were used to support changes which were recommended to improve the status of the IP curriculum at Satit Kaset. All Grades 1-4 students, totaling eight (8) classrooms, were tested during January, 1996. Analysis of variance and multiple comparison (L.S.D.) techniques were utilized for the data analysis. The results of the analysis showed a general pattern of similarity between the IP classrooms and Regular Thai Classroom 3. This pattern of congruence was particularly evident for test scores in mathematics for Grades 1-3, except for Grade 2, where the IP mean was found to be significantly higher than the mean for Classroom 3. No significant differences were found for the means in science, Thai and English language arts for Grade 3. Grade 4 IP science test scores were found to be significantly lower than the others. The findings indicate that alternative assessment methods should be considered as guides for future IP teacher-parent conferences and that the Satit Kaset classrooms should allow for an individual computer station for every student. In addition, parental involvement should be made a major focus within the IP program. There was general agreement that children must be motivated to use English outside the classroom. Modifications will no doubt be made in the IP curriculum and the management scheme during future years in compliance with the findings of the study.
