Helping Eliminate Early Learning Disabilities. Final Evaluation Report.
Greene, Mark; And Others
This document summarizes the second year accomplishments of Central Point School District Number 6's Title III project: Helping Eliminate Early Learning Disabilities. For purposes of evaluation, the project has been organized into three major components; Instructional; Development; and Management. Each component has product and process objectives. Within the present project, evaluation efforts have centered on individual project objectives, which concern (1) identification of children with deficient reading readiness, language development, and perceptual motor skills, (2) development of a course of instruction for these children, (3) development of training programs for aides and instructors in this program, and (4) development of a monitoring and evaluation scheme to ensure adherence to the first three objectives. The report discusses the rationale for the project, and describes the target population, as well as project operations and outcomes. It is concluded that the program accomplished most training and management objectives and developed a significant group of instructional materials. However, the majority of instructional objectives were not attained. It is suggested that this may be due to inappropriate goals, which should be reevaluated. (DP)
