Impact of ESEA Title I Programs on Education in West Virginia. Final Report. Fiscal Year 1977-78.
Thornton, Philip
A statistical view was compiled of the impact of Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) Title I programs on student achievement in 45 of the 55 West Virginia county school districts between 1977-78. The RMC Model A-1 design was used by each district. Nationally normed achievement tests were administered for pretesting and posttesting of the treatment group. The report contains descriptions of: (1) the national effort to develop a system for aggregating outcome data from diverse programs; (2) the state effort to implement the RMC Model A-1 evaluation model; (3) the state's implementation process; and (4) Title I program outcomes presented in terms of the normal curve equivalent (NCE). Title I participant achievement is presented as the change in mean gain scores in NCEs. Mean gain scores are reported by the following variables: subject, grade, time spent in the program, method of presentation, and dates of the pretest and posttest. Additionally, data are provided on the number of participating students, the number of tested students, and the cost of the program. (Author/MH)
