The Dale Avenue Early Childhood Education Center, opened in September 1969 and funded under Title III of the 1965 Elementary Secondary Education Act, features a program set up for kindergarten through third grade but basically ungraded. Each child is allowed to move at his own pace within the range of his own abilities. Furthermore, the child's social, physical, cultural, and emotional development as well as his academic knowledge is fostered. A pre- and post-test experimental and control design using standardized and locally developed instruments was used to evaluate the academic performance of the students in the study. Eight groups of subjects were compared: Dale Avenue experimental--kindergarten and first level; experimental performance objective record groups--kindergarten and first level; disadvantaged control groups--kindergarten and first grade; and advantaged control groups--kindergarten and first grade. Two tester-supplementary teachers and the Dale Avenue psychometrician administered each group the following tests: Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test, Skill Assessment Test, and Identity and Body Parts Checklist. In-service teacher training was instituted on two levels: formal workshops held by experts in education and informal meetings held with the teachers using the performance objective curriculum.
