In Search of Achievement Correlates in Title I Projects.
Yap, Kim Onn
Data obtained for 89 Title I reading projects were analyzed by multiple regression and discriminant function techniques to assess the relationships between project students' achievement and project characteristics. The results suggested that project characteristics specified in the Title I Evaluation and Reporting System (TIERS) data forms are potentially useful as predictors of achievement gain. Two of the more potent factors were shown to be per pupil cost and pretest achievement status. Taken together they explained more than 25 percent of the variance in achievement gain. (Author/MK)
