Evaluation of Title I (ESEA) Programs, 1968-1969.
Milwaukee Public Schools, WI.
In this report, the evaluation plan attempts to identify contributing variables in assessing the impact of ESEA Title I services on disadvantaged students participating, through the establishment of comparison groups. This effort involved the implementation of sampling procedures at both the secondary school and elementary school levels, the obtaining of baseline variables for the entire sampled groups, and the administration of achievement pre-tests to all students in the samples. Two sampling strategies were employed. At the elementary level, five public schools and two non-public schools were selected randomly; at the secondary level, each program was sampled by randomly selecting half of the schools in which in each of the programs was operating. Questionnaires and survey instruments were administered to students, parents, and staff members. The principal findings was that the evaluation questions were left unanswered resulting from the lack of adequate control groups. Reportedly, the lack of control groups also greatly increased the uncertainty of interpretation regarding individual program effectiveness. (RJ)
