Project STAR Final Evaluation Report (State Technical Assistance Resources Project). Volume I.
Maryland State Dept. of Education, Baltimore. Div. of Instruction.
This is the first of three volumes that constitute the final evaluation report of Project STAR (State Technical Assistance Resources), an undertaking of the Maryland State Department of Education designed to help 36 elementary schools improve their reading programs. This volume is essentially descriptive and is divided into seven parts. The first part contains a general overview of the project and provides information about its goals, staff, and process model. The second part provides a discussion of change as it relates to the redirection of reading programs in the project schools. The third part focuses on the inservice component used to bring about change in the project schools, while the fourth part contains participant reactions to such elements of the project as its successful components, project outcomes as related to goals, the use of a teacher/staff perceptual survey, program improvement efforts, and the use of confidence sheets. The fifth part presents narratives by participants that describe briefly some of the project activities, and the final part summarizes findings related to the adult education parenting projects offered in 24 of the schools that were designed to assist parents who wanted to help their children read better. Appendixes contain several project documentation forms, an overview of the process model, a list of project goals and objectives, a trainer of trainers model, and a model for delivery systems within the project.
