Data Analysis of the 1968-69 Survey of Compensatory Education (Title I). Final Report.
Glass, Gene V.; And Others
In this report, the results of analyses of data from ESEA Title I Program evaluations collected in the 1969 Survey of Compensatory Education are presented. These data analyses bear on the evaluation of the operations and impact of the programs in 9236 school districts and 3219 elementary schools, involving 215,995 teachers of 5,733,976 pupils in grades two, four, and six. The data analyses are organized around four general questions about compensatory education programs in Title I elementary schools during the 1968-69 school year. (1) In what context of families, schools, and communities were compensatory education programs conducted? (2) What was the extent of the needs for compensatory education programs and how did these needs vary with such factors as pupil's ethnic-group membership, urbanism of school, etc.? (3) How efficient and sensible was the process of allocation of resources for compensatory education programs? Were Title I funds and participation in compensatory education programs allocated to the schools, teachers, and pupils with the greatest need for such programs? (4) What impact did compensatory education programs have? What were the outcomes of such programs in terms of pupils' performance on standardized achievement tests, teachers' ratings of pupils' academic personal and social growth, and teachers' general satisfaction with compensatory programs?
