Issues in Remedial Program Evaluation. ORET Report No. 3.
This report consists of the descriptions and results of two studies carried out to examine Title I programs in the Newark, New Jersey, public schools. The Sustaining Effects Study focused on two groups of pupils: those who participated in Title I programs for two years (1979 to 1982), and those who received remediation for one year (1979-80) and because of their success did not need assistance in 1980-81. An extended Model-C analysis was performed for the first group and an Extended Model-A analysis was performed for the second group. Results show sustaining effects in grade 6 for both reading and math, in grade 5 for math only, and in grade 4 for neither component. The Instructional Strategy Study aimed at determining which instructional strategy (regular classroom, pull-out, or lab) has been most effective with Title I pupils. Twelve classes from grades two to seven were considered at four different schools. The impact of student overall academic standing and general program status was controlled. Results of the analysis of variance performed showed that the pull-out method tends to be the most effective, although where Title I enrollment was small, the lab approach was preferable. (Author/GC)
