Home Start Evaluation Study. Interim Report III: Summative Evaluation Results.
Deloria, Dennis; And Others
This report presents data collected in six of the 16 Home Start sites in operation in the spring of 1973. The major task of the pilot summative evaluation was to try out the measurement battery so necessary modifications could be completed before beginning the actual evaluation in fall 1973. Another purpose was to train a capable field staff and develop quality methods for gathering the data. This report and the supporting statistical analyses undertake three tasks: (1) To assess the spring 1973 measurement battery and field data collection procedures, and to compare them with the fall 1972 battery and procedures to see if progress has been made on problems indentified in "Interim Report II," (2) To identify changes in items and whole scores that have occurred from fall 1972 to spring 1973 for families who participated in both data collections, and (3) To determine if preliminary relationships identified in fall 1972 between children's performance and aspects of their home environment have been replicated and clarified in the spring 1973 data. Based on the outcomes of these analyses of spring 1973 data, recommendations about the final National Home Start Evaluation measurement battery will be made. (Author/CS)
