Tompkins, John F.
The 1983-84 Chapter 1 Reading Program of the Des Moines (Iowa) Independent Community School District is evaluated in this report. The first section of the report describes the project's operation, and specifically discusses the criteria used for selecting students' instructional methods and activities, how instruction was organized, parent contact and participation, and support programs and services. The second section deals with the program's budget and expenditures, and the results of the evaluation are presented in the third section, which examines each of the four objectives being monitored--administration, student performance, instruction, and family performance. The fourth section contains comments on the evaluation, while section five advances recommendations for improving the program. Appendixes contain detailed financial records and copies of test materials. (RBW)
