Evaluation of Twenty Ungraded Schools. A Research Project.
Barbadora, Bernard M.
Twelve elementary and eight secondary ungraded schools in various geographical areas of the country were visited and reported upon by members of a selected school system staff. The resulting descriptive analysis established the criteria necessary for the evaluation of ungraded schools. Contained in the research findings are school comparisons and original rating scales which the author has formulated. The data used in the evaluation were acquired from (1) written reports made by the staff members relative to what they observed in the respective schools visited, (2) published articles about the schools obtained from the school systems themselves and from chamber of commerce materials, and (3) an evaluation made by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools of two particular schools. Findings revealed that two elementary schools were considered to be ideal or excellent ungraded schools, five received a rating of very good, and the remaining five schools received ratings from good to fair. Two secondary schools were considered ideal ungraded organizations, five were evaluated very good, and the remaining one secondary school received a rating of fail. (Author/MLF)
