Big City Title I Evaluation Conference (Fort Lauderdale, Florida, December 27-30, 1966), 1967 Report.
Pittsburgh Public Schools, PA.
This conference report presents the position taken by large cities in evaluating projects under ESEA Title I. Since this was the first educational legislation in history to call for evaluation at the local level of programs generated by Federal funds, most districts had little time to design project evaluation and to obtain adequate research staffs, facilities, and basic data. The conference was held to aid in perfecting project evaluation procedures in order to gain continuing congressional support for the Title I program. Organized around a theme of sharing evaluation assumptions and operational procedures, the report is divided into three major sections: Principles of evaluation, evaluation based on theoretical models, and evaluation case studies. Section I includes an overview of ESEA evaluation and a summary of evaluation principles, while section II discusses the theoretical bases of the Columbus and Pittsburgh evaluation programs. Section III presents case studies for Cincinnati, Dade County, Detroit, Los Angeles, Milwaukee, New York, Oakland, and Philadelphia. (TT)
