Long Term Follow-up Report of Four BAWP Programs. Evaluation of the Bay Area Writing Project. Technical Report.
Prepared as part of the evaluation of the Bay Area Writing Project (BAWP), this report provides results of surveys evaluating four types of BAWP programs (elementary and secondary school-year inservice programs, university extension special courses, and summer invitational programs), showing that BAWP programs have long-term effects on student and teacher attitudes toward writing and writing instruction. The report contains descriptions of the four types of programs, the design of the study, the results, conclusions, and recommendations. The results section is divided into eight parts and provides information on demographic characteristics of BAWP participants, attendance, impact on students, impact on teachers, overall assessment of BAWP impact on teaching practices, district support, and presenting respondents' open-ended comments. Eight appendixes provide samples of the questionnaires and show frequencies of responses for the separate and combined cells of the surveys. (RL)
