Analysis of Compensatory Education in Five School Districts. Volume I: Summary. Final Report.
Mosbaek, E.J.; And Others
The results of compensatory education (CE) were evaluated in 5 school districts distributed across the nation. These 5 districts represented a subsample of an earlier evaluation involving 11 districts. Data were gathered on the amount and type of CE and the achievement scores of the pupils participating in CE during the 1965-66 and 1966-67 school years under Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965. The purpose of the study was to determine whether CE had improved student reading achievement, what types of CE proved most successful, and what pupil-school-environment factors were associated with achievement change. The results indicated increased achievement due to CE among pupils of lower achievement levels. CE efforts in reading appeared to be the most successful. Initial achievement and racial composition were 2 variables which correlated with changes in achievement. A related document is RC 002 951. (DK)
