The Later Effects of the Parent Education Follow Through Program on Achievement Scores for Matched Pairs of Program Children and Their Non-Program Siblings.
Szegda, Martha J.; And Others
Fifty-one ninth through eleventh grade students who participated with their parents in the Parent Education Follow Through Program (PEFTP) while in elementary school were compared with their older, non-program siblings on the Differential Aptitude Test (DAT) and the Science Research Associates (SRA) Achievement Series. (PEFTP was a compensatory program designed for low-income children in grades K-3, with the focus on parent involvement in the education of their children.) No significant differences were found between the two groups on SRA performance, but on all three SRA subtests the PEFTP group mean scores were higher than those for the older sibling group. There were no significant differences between the two groups on the Vocational factor of DAT but there was a significant PEFTP-favoring difference on the Academic factor. For both DAT factors, the PEFTP group mean scores were higher than those for the older sibling group. (CMG)
