A Computerized System for the Evaluation of Achievement in Title I.
Finley, Carmen J.; Elman, Annalee
This paper describes a computerized system designed and developed for the purpose of simplifying and improving scoring and summarizing the achievement of students participating in Title I programs. The goal of the evaluation and reporting system is to provide meaningful and comparable information about Title I projects at the school building, school district, state, and federal levels. The data are reported from each Title I project. These data are entered on coding sheets and show identifying information for the school district, the building, and each student within the building. Developed originally for use in Iowa, the system is presently being used in some form in four states. Local districts report raw scores to the State Department of Education, along with proper test identification. The system enters raw scores and other identifying information and produces summary reports by school building and district. It also gives a diagnosis of selected evaluation procedures and what percent of students were affected if improper procedures were used. The system has both reduced the reporting burden for local districts and increased the accuracy of the aggregated state reports. (Author/PN)
