Analysis of the Methods Used for Identifying Potential School Dropouts. Final Report.
Neyman, C. A., Jr.
This final report analyzes the research methods used in the identification of potential dropouts. This program was administered under Title I (ESEA, 1965) in the District of Columbia (see also ED 049 319). Three forms were used in the evaluation of Title I students identified as potential dropouts during the school year 1967-68: (1) Student Identification Form (IDF) Student Evaluation Form (SEF) and (3) Pupil Personnel Worker Team Evaluation Form (PPTF). To study the interrelationship of the variables contained in these three forms, a sample was obtained for which all three forms were available. Factor analysis of the data was carried out and the statistical findings as well as the instruments are appended. (CK)
