Final Evaluation Report for Project HOPE.
Earls, Neal
This document is a final evaluation report on Project HOPE (Health and Optimum Physical Education)--a Title III project to advance creativity in education--which has been conducted in grades 1-8 in schools in Ocilla, Georgia. The purposes of this program were: (a) to improve children's physical fitness, motor skills, and knowledge and understanding of physical education and (b) to contribute to improvement in academic achievement and self-concept. Students were tested during the 1971-72 and 1972-73 school years. A random sample of 15 percent of the student population of each sex in each grade level was given the written test in 1971-72. The sample was increased to 30 percent in 1972-73. All students received the physical performance test, and a random sample of 30 percent by sex in each grade level was used in 1971-72; 50 percent was used in 1972-73. Students in the sample demonstrated sizable and statistically significant improvement in both the areas of physical fitness and motor skills, in both sexes, and throughout the 8 grades. They did not, however, significantly improve their scores in the areas of knowledge and understanding of physical education, academic achievement, and self-concept, although some gain was noted. (PB)
