Evaluation and Review of Title I, Higher Education Act of 1965, Florida, 1966-70.
Battistelli, Vince P.; Minnis, John R.
The review and evaluation of 1966-1970 Community Service programs in Florida dealt with the office of the State Coordinator, the Advisory Committee, and the processes of communication, review, selection, and administration of Title I funds; and referred to projects and all aspects associated with these. Projects were classified into five problem areas but the majority were in Human Resource Development, and major effect was in educational enrichment of senior citizens and educational guidance and programs for women. To achieve maximal participation, emphasis was placed on communication flow between the institution and the community, interest groups, and/or target groups. Over 95% of the directors acknowledged the importance of interagency cooperation; 98% used mass media for dissemination of information. Followup activities were carried out by 75% of the institutions. Thirty-five percent of the projects had an effect on changing the status of the department within the institution, while the remaining 65% indicated no change. Absence of adequate evaluation reports was the major weakness of Title I funded projects. (Listed are projects funded, institutional source, year of funding, and amount given.) (NL)
