Evaluation of Title I ESEA Compensatory Education.
General Electric Co., Washington, DC. TEMPO.
This paper reviews the findings of TEMPO's 1967 and subsequent evaluation studies and offers some conclusions and recommendations aimed at strengthening Title I compensatory education programs. An overview of Title I and a description of the TEMPO study and its methodology are provided. It is stated that, with the measurement methods used, no evidence of widespread enhanced reading achievement could be found to be associated with the first full year of Title I. More refined analytical methods using longitudinal techniques are said to be necessary in order to determine evidence of success. The need for detailed and precise information from individual program sites is stressed. Problem areas in the allocation of compensatory education funds are also outlined. (Author/EB)
