Results of Parent and Student Reaction Questionnaire. Technical Report No. 8.
In order to evaluate the changes in parent and student attitudes toward the various components of the Early Childhood Education (ECE) program, the paraprofessional home visitors were asked to complete a ten item questionnaire based on their observations of the family's reactions to each of three components (TV program, home visit, and mobile classroom). The questionnaire was completed on a weekly basis for a sample of approximately 80 families normally visited by the paraprofessionals. Graphical analysis of the weekly changes in attitude of parents and children showed a similar pattern for individuals exposed to the mobile facility and those who were only visited by the paraprofessional. Although attitude toward the program remained at a highly positive level throughout the year, it decreased slightly in late October, early January, and late February. Both parents' and children's attitudes followed this same pattern, although the parents were consistently more enthusiastic about the program. A summary of AEL Early Child Education program is available as PS 004 889. (AJ)
