Teaching and Learning Research Corp., New York, NY.
This report evaluated 17 different guidance or guidance-related projects funded under Title I of the 1965 Elementary Secondary Education Act and carried out during the 1970-71 school year throughout the five boroughs of New York City. In general, evaluation procedures included the following: (1) Numerous site visits during observations were made and recorded, and project staff members, administrators and personnel in the involved schools, and, occasionally, parents and children involved in the program were interviewed; (2) Where applicable, program records were inspected so as to get an understanding of the workload, its flow, and the efficiency of the program's operation; (3) Staff Evaluation Questionnaires were designed by the evaluation staff and collected from all project staff members; these surveyed the staff's duties, roles, and perceptions of the program's strengths, weaknesses, and needed changes; (4) Teacher Questionnaires were generally collected from a sample of the teachers of program enrollees; (5) Parent Questionnaires were widely employed; and, (6) School records were analyzed in many of the evaluations to determine the impact of the enrollee's attendance, lateness, report card grades, and standardized achievement test results.
