High/Scope Educational Research Foundation, Ypsilanti, MI.; Abt Associates, Inc., Cambridge, MA.
This evaluation plan outlines the essential features of Home Start Evaluation activities scheduled for the twelve months beginning Fall 1973. Data will be collected in an effort to answer the following four questions: (1) Are Home Start program guidelines being followed in the kinds of families and staff involved?, (2) Do families in Home Start for one year achieve greater progress toward program objectives than similar families not in Home Start?, (3) Do Home Start children achieve the same developmental gains as Head Start children, and (4) What are the costs associated with Home Start and Head Start program operations? In addition to the quantitative data needed, qualitative data will be collected to describe the organization and activities of each of the sixteen Home Start projects. (Author/CS)
