Evaluation of State Urban Education Quality Incentive Programs. District 19, New York City Board of Education.
Fordham Univ., Bronx, NY. Inst. for Research and Evaluation.
Two State Urban Education Quality Incentive projects were implemented and coordinated within the administrative component in District 19, New York City Board of Education. One of the projects, STINT, provided 18 teacher trainers to give necessary support to 160 beginning and inexperienced teachers and to increase the academic achievement of their pupils in reading and mathematics. A second project, Diagnostic Reading, employed a full-time teacher to provide intensive remediation for children in grades 1 to 3 in two district schools. A full-time family assistant worked in conjunction with the teacher in a follow-up program of home-school relationships. Evaluations of the administrative component and both projects were carried out separately by means of interviews, conferences with involved personnel, observation, and analysis of project and personnel records. All three were found to be highly efficient and effective. This report gives information on program objectives, evaluation objectives and procedures, program implementation, evaluation results, and recommendations for improvement. Tables are included.
