Louisiana Compensatory/Remedial Education Student Profile: Development and Use of an Individualized Basic Skills Reporting System.
Hunter, Charles M.
This paper examines the characteristics of the Louisiana Compensatory/Remedial Education Student Profile form and the nature of the compensatory education program evaluation served by the Student Profile. The Student Profile is a one page, triplicate form prepared by the Louisiana State Department of Education for each grade 2 student who failed to attain the minimum score on the State's Grade 2 Basic Skills Tests (BST). Those skills in which the student failed to demonstrate mastery on the BST are marked on the Profile, generating a statement of the student's deficiencies in basic skills. School systems use the Profile to (1) identify learning objectives, (2) document delivery of compensatory/remedial services, and (3) monitor student mastery of basic skills deficiencies. The success of the Profile appears to be due in part to the form's usefulness in communicating the students' basic skills performance information to the school systems at the outset of their programs. A master copy of the State Funded Compensatory Remedial Education Student Profile is included. (PN)
