ALABAMA ANNUAL EVALUATION REPORT FOR 1965-66 FISCAL YEAR, ELEMENTARY AND SECONDARY EDUCATION ACT OF 1965--TITLE I.
Alabama State Dept. of Education, Montgomery.
ONE SECTION OF THIS REPORT DESCRIBES CONSULTATIVE SERVICES FOR PLANNING AND EVALUATING THE ELEMENTARY AND SECONDARY EDUCATION TITLE I PROJECTS, EVALUATION DESIGNS, DISSEMINATION OF PROJECT INFORMATION, MAJOR PROBLEM AREAS, COORDINATION WITH COMMUNITY ACTION PROGRAMS, INTERRELATIONSHIP WITH OTHER ELEMENTARY AND SECONDARY EDUCATION ACT TITLES, NONPUBLIC SCHOOL PARTICIPATION, AND THE ATTAINMENT OF PROJECT OBJECTIVES. ADDITIONAL SECTIONS DISCUSS INNOVATIVE PROJECTS, METHODS OF INCREASING STAFF, AND MEASUREMENT INSTRUMENTS. AMONG THE PROJECTS' MAJOR PROBLEM AREAS WERE LACK OF PERSONNEL AT THE STATE AND LOCAL LEVELS AND INAPPROPRIATE STANDARDIZED TESTS FOR MEASURING THE ACHIEVEMENT OF THE DISADVANTAGED CHILDREN. TWO OF THE MOST FREQUENTLY REPORTED EVALUATION DESIGNS UTILIZED PRE- AND POSTTEST PROJECT SCORES FOR COMPARISON WITH SCORES FROM LOCAL, STATE, AND NATIONAL GROUPS. STANDARDIZED ACHIEVEMENT AND INTELLIGENCE TESTS, TEACHER-MADE TESTS, TEACHER OBSERVATION AND EVALUATION, AND PHYSICAL FITNESS TESTS WERE AMONG THE CHIEF MEASUREMENT INSTRUMENTS. PROJECT OBJECTIVES TO BE MEASURED INCLUDED STUDENTS' IMPROVEMENT IN READING, LANGUAGE, AND COMMUNICATIVE ARTS, MATHEMATICS, AND GENERAL ATTITUDES. OTHER OBJECTIVES WERE THE PROVISION OF HEALTH, FOOD, GUIDANCE, LIBRARY, AND ADMINISTRATIVE SERVICES. ALTHOUGH THE ATTAINING OF OBJECTIVES WAS HINDERED BY LACK OF ADEQUATE TIME, ALMOST ALL LOCAL DISTRICTS REPORTED PROGRESS. TABULAR DATA ARE PRESENTED THROUGHOUT THE REPORT. (LB)
