EDUCATION ACT PROJECT EVALUATION. PART II.
FELIX, JOSEPH L.; JACOBS, JAMES N.
THIS REPORT DESCRIBES AND EVALUATES TWO COMPENSATORY EDUCATION PROJECTS IN CINCINNATI, OHIO, FUNDED UNDER TITLE I OF THE ELEMENTARY AND SECONDARY EDUCATION ACT. IN THE SECONDARY SCHOOL REMEDIAL AND ENRICHMENT PROJECT, SPECIALLY EMPLOYED PERSONNEL USED EQUIPMENT AND SUPPLIES PURCHASED WITH TITLE I FUNDS TO INCREASE THE ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT OF DISADVANTAGED SECONDARY SCHOOL STUDENTS. EVALUATIVE DATA INDICATED THAT THE PROJECT WAS NOT SUCCESSFUL IN ATTAINING SPECIFIED OBJECTIVES. HOWEVER, SEVERAL SPECIFIC INSTRUCTIONAL ACTIVITIES APPEARED EFFECTIVE, SUCH AS REMEDIAL ENGLISH INSTRUCTION, HEALTH AND GUIDANCE SERVICES, AND SUMMER READING AND MATHEMATICS REMEDIATION. THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL REMEDIATION AND ENRICHMENT ACTIVITIES INCLUDED REMEDIAL INSTRUCTION, ENRICHMENT LEARNING RESOURCE CENTERS, PARENT INVOLVEMENT, AND A SUMMER LEARNING CAMP. MEASUREMENT OF FUNCTIONAL OBJECTIVES REVEALED ONLY OCCASIONAL POSITIVE RESULTS. IN THE EVALUATION OF SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONAL ACTIVITIES, ONLY THE LANGUAGE ARTS PROGRAM APPEARED EFFECTIVE. SATURDAY ENRICHMENT CLASSES AND THE SUMMER LEARNING CAMP WERE WELL-RECEIVED, AND THE RESOURCE CENTERS WERE OPERATING EFFICIENTLY. THIS ARTICLE IS PUBLISHED IN THE "JOURNAL OF INSTRUCTIONAL RESEARCH AND PROGRAM DEVELOPMENT," VOLUME 3, NUMBER 3, FEBRUARY 1968. (LB)
