Long-Term Sustained Effects of Chapter I Participation, 1979-1982.
Claus, Richard N.; Girrbach, Charmaine J.
The long-term sustained impact of the Saginaw School District Chapter I Supplemental Teacher Participation (STP) program on third grade students during the 1979-80 school year was examined. A total of 256 students were classified into one of four categories: 1 year, 2 year continuous, 3 year continuous, and 2 year interrupted. Two different standards were used to gauge observed growth of groups in each category. The first required growth equal to or exceeding normal growth or, in other words, sustaining normal growth levels or exceeding them. All four category groups exceeded the standard of "normal growth" in both academic areas except for the 2 year interrupted group in mathematics. The second standard required growth equaling or exceeding the growth of the 3 year continuous STP group. The three other groups failed this standard in both subjects with the exception of the 2 year continuous group in mathematics. It was found that the academic achievement of Saginaw's compensatory education population is associated positively with the amount of continuous time spent in the Chapter I STP program. (Author/PN)
