The National Evaluation of the PUSH for Excellence Project. Technical Report 2: Implementation.
Murray, Saundra R.; And Others
This report evaluates the implementation of the PUSH for Excellence program (PUSH-EXCEL) from September of 1979 to March of 1980. PUSH-EXCEL operated in 39 schools in six cities. For evaluative purposes, 11 schools were studied, seven of them intensively. Data were collected through interviews, observations, and examination of archival records. The first chapter of this report summarizes the state of implementation in each of the six cities. The second chapter discusses the implementation plan devised, elaborated, and revised by the national PUSH-EXCEL office. The third chapter presents evaluative data, including indicators of awareness of the program, affective response to the program, and engagement in program activities. Implications for future program implementation and subsequent evaluation are presented in the final chapter. Evaluative instruments are appended. (MK)
