Communication Technology Corp., Marlton, NJ.; Newark Board of Education, NJ.
The overall goal of the 1972-73 Title I Program in the Newark School District was to diagnose reading difficulties of and provide preventive, individualized, developmental, and/or remedial programs for children who had demonstrated extreme educational deficiencies. This evaluation attempts to measure the extent and effectiveness of various reading programs implemented during the 1972-73 school year for disadvantaged elementary and secondary students. The document is presented in five color-keyed sections that include Conclusions and Recommendations; Program Description (scope, objectives, and activities); Program Evaluation (methodology and overview of total evaluative process); Evaluation Findings and Discussion; and Appendixes (tabular postings of test score analyses and the reading intervention longitudinal study report.) Also included is a comparative analysis of Title I and non-Title I student achievement during the school year. Results of this analysis reveal that the nearly 14,000 Title I students (K-3) who participated in the program registered progress in reading achievement either beyond or equal to that achieved by their non-Title I peers.
