Title I Institutionalized Facilities Program. O.E.E. Evaluation Report, 1981-82.
New York City Board of Education, Brooklyn, NY. Office of Educational Evaluation.
This report documents the 1981-82 evaluation of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, Title I, Part B, Institutional Facilities Program carried out through the Division of Special Education of the New York City public schools. Using a diagnostic-prescriptive methodology, the program provided after-school and pull-out individualized remedial instruction in vocational and occupational education to approximately 3,000 children and adolescents residing in 172 facilities for the neglected or delinquent. Some students also received reading and math instruction. Evaluation focused on physical setting, materials, supplies, program goals, instructional activities, student records, planning, assessment, staff background, orientation, supervision, as well as problems in implementation and administrative concerns. Also evaluated were pupil achievement objectives in reading and mathematics. Measures of the relationship between mastery of new skills and amount of instruction indicated that the program met or exceeded its proposed goals in all pupil achievement areas. It is recommended, however, that the program (1) focus on elements other than vocational skills for some retarded and the very young children; (2) establish instructional policy for transient pupils; (3) modify testing requirements; and (4) provide more inservice training.
