Exito, Title VII ESEA, 1973-1974. Hartford Moves Ahead: An Evaluative Report.
Hartford Public Schools, CT.
As originally developed, Projecto Exito, often referred to as the Bilingual Community School or simply as "Escuelita," was in name and in deed a comprehensive community-based approach to the problems of bilingual education, funded under Title VII of the 1965 Elementary Secondary Education Act. Intended to serve Spanish and English-speaking students in direct proportion to their distribution within the Barnard-Brown attendance area, the program was planned so as to include two interrelated dimensions. Exito was to serve a demonstration effort in bilingual education which could then be expanded to other populations if the results were favorable; it was also to serve as a bilingual community school which could and would provide direct services to students ranging from preschool to adult education. While the evaluation design was a relatively straight forward pre-post-test model, a number of operational controls were build in to the design so as to insure program validity to the resultant data. The design included pre- and post-measures which could be administered not only on a grade by grade basis, but over a longitudinal period as well. While the design did attend to affective indications of change, data in this area were not reported; instead, only various forms of the "Inter-America Test of General Ability" were used. (Author/JM)
