Middle School Evaluation Final Report Technical Appendix.
Larson, John C.
This report summarizes the design, sample, measures, and results of a study of the attitudes and activities of middle-school students in Montgomery County Public Schools (Maryland). The study, longitudinally designed, examined three groups of schools--four middle schools, two grades 7-8 junior high schools, and four grades 7-9 junior high schools. The number of students sampled four times over a 4-year time span varied from 1,600 to 2,350 per sampling. Pupils answered 190 questions grouped and analyzed under 5 topics: attitudes toward school and staff, opinions on peer environment, participation in school activities, student self-concept and motivation, and academic achievement. An attachment consolidates the means, standard deviations, and sample numbers for each school group. (JW)
