A Concern for Academic and Social Growth: H.R. Butler Elementary School, 1972-73. Research and Development Report, Volume 7, Number 22, November 1973.
Willis, Patricia L.; Noe, James
H. R. Butler Elementary School was the recipient of local and federal compensatory funds during the 1972-73 school year. Through the local comprehensive Instructional Program, the school received testing and personnel services pertinent to the reading program, particularly in the primary grades. Federal funds from Title I of the 1965 Elementary and Secondary Education Act provided professional and paraprofessional staff and funds for materials and supplies to improve the reading achievement of the most educationally deprived pupils. Services were also supplied by a Georgia State University program to kindergarten pupils suspected of having learning disabilities and handicaps. The purpose of this report is to evaluate the effects of these special projects on both the indentified participants and the general program of the school. In order to evaluate the specified behavioral objectives and to observe pupil achievement under the general program, certain tests were administered to monitor changes in critical variables. These instruments were selected under the guidelines of the compensatory programs and in accordance with the testing program of the school system. The following instruments were used: the Metropolitan Achievement Tests in reading were administered to all Title I pupils. The Self-Appraisal Inventory was administered to Title I pupils to determine changes in self-concept. The Iowa Tests of Basic Skills were administered throughout the entire school system. The Basecheck, a locally devised preschool instrument was administered to all kindergarten pupils to determine their readiness for first grade. (Author/JM)
