Year Two of a Three-Year Evaluation of University Hill Secondary School.
Leslie, Susan; Edwards, Peter
The second year (1972-1973) of a three-year evaluation of University Hill Secondary School, three areas of the program were examined: a survey was made of the use of community resources; a study of the adaptability of Grade Eight students to the individualized program; the performance of students on alternative forms of the same standardized test that they took in 1972. The results of these studies reaffirmed the generally positive view of University Hill that emerged from Year One of the evaluation. The use of community resources was found to be extensive and varied. Through the mini-course program, students were exposed to a much wider range of volunteers and community facilities than were students at the comparison schools. Grade Eight students from the three feeder schools were adapting well to University Hill. They were honouring their "contracted time" obligations by attending class, and were devoting a reasonable portion of their unscheduled time to their studies. The results of the testing indicate that the autonomy afforded students at University Hill through the availability of individualized independent programs did not adversely affect student achievement.
