Survey on ECIA Chapter 1 Evaluation Regulations.
A survey which gave respondents an opportunity to react to the evaluation requirements of the Education Consolidation and Improvement Act (ECIA), Chapter 1, was distributed, in June 1988, to local and state educational agencies, universities, and Technical Assistance Centers throughout the United States. Part I of the survey contained 14 questions, and Part II of the survey listed key Chapter 1 evaluation issues that were to act as idea generations for position papers. One hundred and eighty surveys were distributed, and 34 responses to Part I were received. Part II and an additional request generated seven position papers. Based on the responses, the Study Group prepared recommendations for the Chapter 1 evaluation process. The position papers, which follow these recommendations, include the following: (1) "Use of Norm-Referenced Tests To Measure Higher Order Thinking Skills" (D. Levine); (2) "Sources of Errors in the Chapter 1 Reporting System" (G. Thompson); (3) "Selecting Chapter 1 (Compensatory Education) Students Using Multiple Selection Criteria" (S. Pakes); (4) "Setting Chapter 1 Standards: A Continuing Dilemma" (R. J. Nearine); (5) "The Evaluation of Migrant Programs" (P. Higgins); (6) "Using Equated Norm-Referenced Test Scores for Chapter 1 Reporting Purposes" (S. Johnson-Lewis); (7) "Issues and Areas for Aggregating Chapter 1 Data" (G. D. Estes); and (8) "Comparing TIERS Model A with the Gap-Reduction Design" (G. K. Tallmadge). (SLD)
