Identifying and Organizing for Individual Needs. Evaluation of Wilkes County ESEA Title III Project, 1970-71.
Bivens, Edna S.
The Elementary and Secondary Education Act Title III Project described in this evaluation report was conducted in predominately rural Wilkes County, North Carolina. The project's major objective was to develop a program which would identify the learning problems of the students involved and to develop educational programs which would eliminate these problems. The experimental sample included approximately 500 children in grade levels 1 through 4, who were placed in special classes. Both objective and subjective measures were used; the subjective measures came from opinionnaires and questionnaires given to parents, pupils, teachers, and other school personnel and from observations by consultants; the objective methods consisted of the school unit's regular testing program, along with special standardized and individual tests. Major results of the evaluation were that (1) parents were satisfied with their child's attitude and progress, (2) teachers were in favor of the methodology used, (3) children involved demonstrated a positive attitude toward school, and (4) the Wilkes County Board of Education decided to continue the classes.
