Evaluation of the 1982-83 Oklahoma City Public Schools Indiana Education Program.
Journal of Research and Evaluation of the Oklahoma City Public Schools, v14 n5 1983
The Oklahoma City Public School 1982-83 Indian Education Program served students in two major areas: academic assistance and supplemental guidance and counseling. Specific program objectives included the following: under academic assistance (1) students receiving tutoring will show achievement gains in reading and mathematics; (2) the Title IV-A program and other programs providing academic assistance will be coordinated by the Indian Education Advisor; under supplemental guidance and counseling (1) assistance will be provided for all students referred for excessive absenteeism; (2) of referred students assessed on the Behavior/Adjustment Record, at least 20 percent will show improvement; (3) the financial needs of referred students will be assessed and resources provided; (4) information on career and educational opportunities will be provided to students; and (5) one Indian cultural awareness activity will be provided in each building each semester. The evaluation procedures involved data collection from several sources: quarterly reports, qualitative data on staff members' use of their time, the Wide Range Achievement Test (WRAT), and the district-administered California Achievement Test (CAT). Analyses showed that both objectives for the Academic Assistance component were met and four of the five Supplemental Guidance and Counseling objectives were met. Data sources also documented the wide variety of activities occurring during the 1982-83 school year. (Author/BW)
