A STATISTICAL ANALYSIS OF PUPILS' AND PARENTS' PERCEPTIONS OF THE EXTENDED DAY PROGRAM IN THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS, GRADES THREE THROUGH EIGHT.
DIBLE,ISABEL W.
THE PURPOSE WAS TO OBTAIN EVALUATIVE DATA FROM BOYS AND GIRLS ENROLLED IN SCHOOL DISTRICT'S EXTENDED DAY PROGRAM FOR ACADEMICALLY ABLE AND TALENTED PUPILS, AND FROM THEIR PARENTS, AND TO MAKE COMPARISONS BETWEEN PUPILS' AND PARENTS' PERCEPTIONS OF THE EXPERIENCE. TWO OPINIONNAIRES WERE DEVELOPED FOR PUPILS AND PARENTS. THEY WERE ADMINISTERED TO CHILDREN FROM GRADES 3-4, 5-6, AND 7-8 AND THEIR PARENTS. PARENTS AND PUPILS REPORT CONSIDERABLE GAINS IN GROWTH, BOTH COGNITIVE AND NONCOGNITIVE, AS A RESULT OF PARTICIPATION IN THE PROGRAM. PARENTS' AND PUPILS' PERCEPTIONS OF THIS GROWTH ARE QUITE SIMILAR AND CONSISTENT IN THE COGNITIVE AREAS, SKILLS OF LEARNING AND KNOWLEDGE, SIGNIFICANT ABOVE THE ONE PERCENT LEVEL OF CONFIDENCE. "ABILITY TO FIND INFORMATION" WAS REPROTED AS THE AREA OF LEAST GROWTH. THE LOWEST CORRELATION APPEARS TO OCCUR IN THE NONCOGNITIVE SELF-APPRAISAL ITEMS AT THE THIRD-FOURTH-GRADE LEVEL. REACTIONS OF BOYS AND GIRLS TO THE PROGRAM ARE SIMILAR. OVER 90 PERCENT OF PARENTS AT ALL GRADE LEVELS AND PUPILS FROM GRADES 5 THROUGH 8 INDICATE A DESIRE TO CONTINUE IN THE PROGRAM. SEVENTY-NINE OF THIRD-FOURTH-GRADE PUPILS REPORT THE SAME WISH. THESE FINDINGS MAY BE INTERPRETED AS A STRONG ENDORSEMENT OF THE PROGRAM.
