Evaluation of Multiple Outcomes in the Child Parent Center Compensatory Education Program: Year II.
Eash, Maurice J.; And Others
Results are reported from the second year of a longitudinal evaluation of Child Parent Centers (CPC's) serving low-income urban children. Six-year-old participants and nine-year-old former participants and comparison groups were analyzed on measures including reading and mathematics achievement, internal-external control belief, and parent-interview measures of home educational environment. The first year's report showed significant differences favoring the CPC treatment on all measures. The second year's data allowed the investigators to increase precision by statistically controlling for initial differences using the first year's data. In general, findings continued to favor CPC's over comparison groups. In addition, a rationale is reported which supports the conclusion that treatment and comparison groups were initially equivalent. (Author)
