Evaluation of Title I Summer School Program, Community School District 31, New York City. Summer--1979.
Knight, Michael E.
The Summer Program objectives were to increase pupil competency by providing remedial and corrective instruction in reading and mathematics for children who were likely to be held back, needed strengthening in basic skills, or were one or more years below grade level in reading or math achievement. Eight elementary and junior high schools participated, servicing 624 students in grades one through nine. The elementary reading and math program focused on reteaching basic concepts and skills that children had not mastered. On the junior high level, reading and math instructional techniques were geared toward the development of sequential learning. Communication skills were the foundation of the program. Process evaluation findings indicated that the program operated in an effective manner. Quantitative evaluation, based on criterion referenced tests, was completed separately for each grade level. Findings indicated a high degree of mastery of objectives at each level. Recommendations and test results are included. (MK)
