Use of a Diagnostic Instrument to Gauge Pupil Growth: W.J. Scott Elementary School, 1972-73. Research and Development Report, Volume 7, Number 13, October, 1973.

W. J. Scott Elementary School received local and Federal funds for compensatory programs during the 1972-73 school year. The purpose of this report is to evaluate the compensatory programs as they were implemented in the school and to analyze possible benefits to the general school program in terms of the goals and objectives defined by the faculty. Results of standardized tests administered throughout the school were observed to denote the general standing of all pupils and to relate achievement to past performance, expected performance, and per pupil expenditures. The primary focus of the educational program at Scott Elementary was on the teaching of reading. This emphasis was shared by the special programs, including the Comprehensive Instructional Program, Title I, Elementary Secondary Education Act, and the Career Opportunities Program. Enrollment at Scott in the beginning of the school year was 593 pupils in kindergarten through the seventh grade. A new addition to the school in 1971 added cluster classrooms to the self-contained units. Use of the clusters by various grade levels shifts from year to year as determined by the needs of the pupils. A special class for the multihandicapped was also in its second year of operation this year. In all there were 12 self-contained classrooms and two cluster classrooms plus a class for the deaf, a class for the multihandicapped, a class for the educable mentally retarded, and a morning and afternoon kindergarten.
