Granville, Arthur C.; Love, John M.
This brief report summarizes the analysis and conclusions presented in detail in Interim Report VI regarding the feasibility of conducting a longitudinal study of Project Developmental Continuity (PDC). This project is a Head Start demonstration program aimed at providing educational and developmental continuity between children's Head Start and primary school experiences. The analyses were carried out on information collected primarily during Fall 1966, and focused on the reliability and validity of the measures, the potential comparability of PDC and comparison groups, and the adequacy of PDC and comparison sample size.
