An Evaluation of TCITY: The Twin City Institute for Talented Youth. Report #1 in Evaluation Report Series.
Stake, Robert E.; Gjerde, Craig
This evaluation of the Twin City Institute for Talented Youth, a summer program for gifted students in grades 9 through 12, consists of two parts: a description of the program; and the evaluators' assessments, including advocate and adversary reports. Achievement tests were not used for evaluation. Evaluative comments follow each segment of the program description: (1) goals; (2) admission criteria; (3) calendar; (4) course descriptions and activities; (5) field trips; (6) open campus; and (7) student attitudes. Other comments describe reactions of a participating student; collective student ratings; collective faculty evaluation; cognitive and creative outcomes; the institute's impact on Minneapolis schools; and management policy.
