Saterfiel, Thomas H.
This document is the second annual report of the activities of the Program of Research and Evaluation for Public Schools (PREPS). The mission of PREPS, a consortium of public school districts in Mississippi, is to aid member schools in obtaining quality data from which curricular and administrative decisions can be made. Technical assistance rendered includes research design, evaluation design, statistical interpretation, and training workshops for local staff members. Section 1 of this book contains summaries of the local projects from each of the member school districts. Section 2 contains the technical report of the PREPS overall project, which investigated the relationship between teacher attitudes, characteristics, and delivery of instruction to standardized achievement test results. Section 3 reproduces a speech about local accountability. (Author/LD)
