An Evaluation of the Project STAR Reading Program Intervention (State Technical Assistance Resources Project). Volume II: Evaluation Final Report.
Holowenzak, Stephen P.
This is the second 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 divided into five parts. The first part contains a discussion of the evaluation design used in the project. The second, third, and fourth parts concentrate on one of the project's goals--the improvement of the organization and administration of elementary school reading programs--and details three studies that were undertaken to measure this goal: the Reading Achievement Study, the Standards for Successful Reading Programs Study, and the Teacher/Staff Perceptions Study. The fifth part focuses on another goal of the project--developing staff competencies to improve reading program content and program management capabilities--and details the Inservice Staff Development Study that was devised to measure this goal. The sixth part provides a summary of the evaluative study, including findings, conclusions, and recommendations. Appendixes contain copies of evaluation instruments used in the studies and a glossary of terms used in the report. (FL)
