EVALUATION OF THE 1965 SECONDARY SUMMER SCHOOL PROGRAM.
LALIBERTE, RICHARD A.
A PILOT JUNIOR HIGH SUMMER SCHOOL PROGRAM, PARTIALLY FUNDED BY THE U.S. OFFICE OF ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITY AND DESIGNED TO PROVIDE STUDENTS FROM ECONOMICALLY AND CULTURALLY DISADVANTAGED AREAS OPPORTUNITIES FOR IMPROVING THEIR SKILLS IN LANGUAGE ARTS (PARTICULARLY READING) AND ARITHMETIC, WAS EVALUATED AFTER ITS INITIATION IN THE OAKLAND, CALIFORNIA, PUBLIC SCHOOLS IN 1965. THE EVALUATION WAS BASED ON QUESTIONNAIRE SURVEYS OF PARENTS, STAFF MEMBERS, AND STUDENTS AND ON PRE- AND POST-PROJECT TEST DATA ON THE METROPOLITAN READING AND ARITHMETIC TESTS, INTERMEDIATE LEVEL, FORMS AM AND BM (WORD KNOWLEDGE, COMPUTATION, AND PROBLEM SOLVING AND CONCEPTS) FOR THE NEARLY 500 SEVENTH, EIGHTH, AND NINTH GRADERS WHO COMPLETED THE 6-WEEK PROGRAM. ALL PARTICIPATING STUDENTS HAD IQ'S OF 90 OR MORE AND WERE AT LEAST 12 MONTHS RETARDED IN READING AND ARITHMETIC. A FOLLOWUP STUDY OF A REPRESENTATIVE 20-PERCENT SAMPLE OF THE SUMMER SCHOOL STUDENTS (ALL IN GRADES 8 AND 9) WAS MADE THE FOLLOWING FALL TO DETERMINE THE RESIDUAL EFFECTS OF THE PROGRAM ON ATTENDANCE AND ATTITUDE RECORDS, GENERAL ACHIEVEMENT, READING ACHIEVEMENT, AND STUDENT SELF-RATING AS COMPARED WITH OTHER STUDENTS AND THE PREVIOUS YEAR OF SCHOOL. TABLES, FIGURES, AND COPIES OF THE QUESTIONNARIES ARE INCLUDED IN THE APPENDIXES. (LS)
