Evaluation of the Title I Reading Program in Montgomery County, Virginia, Schools.
Weber, Larry J.; Montgomery, Mary
A reading program to raise the achievement level of disadvantaged children is evaluated. The evaluation is intended to help Montgomery County Schools in determining the effectiveness of its Title I Program and to help the State Department of Education attain a view of Title I programs in Virginia so that both agencies can plan a more effective approach to compensatory education in the future. Descriptions are given of the community, the children, and the program included under the Title I project. Two types of evaluation are reported: (1) performance objectives as measured by standardized tests and (2) achievement, attitudes, and behavior evaluated by reading and classroom teachers in reports and comments recorded in cumulative record data. Facts and figures relating to the budget and school attendance are also presented. The report is concluded with a summary of the project and recommendations limited by problems encountered in the study. Tables are included. (Author/DH)
