Chicago Board of Education, IL. Dept. of Research and Evaluation.
This is a two-volume evaluation report on the effectiveness of 55 Title I activities implemented during fiscal year 1980 in the Chicago (Illinois) Public Schools. The activities include reading and mathematics laboratory and pull-out programs, self contained and individualized programs, and programs serving special needs. Volume 1 ranks each activity on general effectiveness in improving pupils' cognitive growth as measured by standardized tests; makes recommendations for activity continuation, modification, or deletion; and provides a narrative evaluation of each activity. Each evaluation narrative describes (1) specific program activities; (2) organization and management; (3) instructional components; (4) pupil achievement; (5) cost effectiveness; and (6) conclusions and recommendations. Volume 2 presents tables of statistical data on pupil achievement in 53 of the programs, as indicated by the Iowa Test of Basic Skills and the Comprehensive Tests of Basic Skills. Information is provided only for those pupils known to have participated for at least 8 months in the same Title I activity at the same school. (Author/MJL)
