Second and Third Grade Students in the Hunters Point-Bayview SEED Project: A Diagnostic Review.
Counelis, James Steve
This report supplements the first South East Education Development project (SEED) on first grade children. Full and partial records of 624 second grade students and 591 third grade students are the basis of this diagnostic review. The empirical data obtained for the SEED project students included: each student's sex and number of full days in attendance; teacher's estimate of the student's reading level; reading grade assigned at the end of the school term; and scores from standardized tests. The empirical findings were: the second grade students attended 86 percent and the third grade students attended 88 percent of the 181 day school year; the teachers' estimates of students' reading levels were validated by the achievement test scores at the one percent level of significance; there was no significant difference in the mean reading stanine scores per school earned by the second and third grade students in 1969-1970; there was no significant difference in mean attendance between boys and girls; and girls exceeded boys in mean reading stanine scores. Appendices are included. (See ED 052 905 for first SEED report and CS 000 114.) (Author/WR)
