A Supplementary Report on Evaluation of the New Nursery School Program at Colorado State College.
Nimnicht, Glen; And Others
This report, an expansion on "The Interim Report: Research of the New Nursery School," is presented in three sections. The first section examines the test results of 29 children enrolled in the New Nursery School (NNS, for academically handicapped, low income Mexican-Americans) and the REN school (similar to the NNS but for children whose parents can afford tuition). The tests included the Peabody, the Caldwell, the "C" Test, and the Categories Test. Though the tests have a very limited value for evaluating the effectiveness of the program at this time, the results seem to indicate the NNS is affecting children's behavior in a desired direction. Section two, a follow-up study of children who previously attended the schools, used standard tests, such as the Stanford-Binet, and teacher ratings. The tests tend to show that old NNS students are performing at least satisfactorily in their grade. The teacher ratings, however, correlate poorly with more objective measures and lead to the unfortunate conclusion that teachers are still prejudging children as poor-learning stereotypes. The final section reports on the usefulness of the "typing booth," a facility at the NNS. (MH)
