Title I, ESEA Program Evaluation, 1968-69. Program Research and Development.
Jacobs, James N., Ed.; Felix, Joseph L., Ed.
This program evaluation report of 1968-69 Title I ESEA activity in Cincinnati Public Schools is a survey of a number of global measures of the characteristics of pupils, parents, and school personnel in target schools. Measurements reported do not focus on pupils served directly by the program, but on the impact on a larger scale on the total educational program of the schools identified as Title I targets. The program evaluation conclusions were as follows: (1) the high mobility of project students frustrated most long-range longitudinal studies; (2) the task of adequate design controls and control groups, or control groups, made many of the results uncertain at best; (3) the success in meeting behavioral objectives was confused by lack of adequate comparison data; (4) questions of funding jumbled the planning of the program development committees; and, (5) conflict of "hard statistics" and "testimony" as to the relative success of the program could not satisfactorily resolve the question of realistic objectives and comparative success. Extensive data tables are included. (RJ)
