State Compensatory Education: 1979-80. Final Technical Report. Publication No. 79.18.
Austin Independent School District, TX. Office of Research and Evaluation.
A major portion of Texas' State Compensatory Education (SCE) evaluation resources for 1979-80 was devoted to activities related to the statewide assessment of fifth and ninth graders' skills in reading, mathematics, and writing (the Texas Assessment of Basic Skills Project). For purposes of this report, evaluation activity and information is limited primarily to the collection of record-keeping data on students served. Findings are included on seven major components: counseling (grades K-5); bilingual (resource teachers for grades K-5); elementary curriculum (curriculum writer for grades K-5); sixth grade (language arts block); planning; evaluation; and secondary. The latter item included these sub-components: direct instruction classes (grades 7-8); written composition laboratories (grades 6-7-8); Robbins' Armadillo Arts Program (grades 7-11); parent involvement, attendance improvement, and English for Speakers of Languages materials (grades 7-12); Texas Assessment of Basic Skills (grade 9); and fundamentals of math and reading tutorials (grades 10-12). Evaluation material for each component includes a brief description of the instrument; when, where and to whom the instrument was administered; procedures used; and results. The primary question in each component is, "Should more emphasis be placed on serving educationally disadvantaged students through SCE?". (AN)
