Evaluation of Title I ESEA Projects, 1973-1974: Technical Reports. Report No. 7523.
Philadelphia School District, PA. Office of Research and Evaluation.
This document is an annual report issued by the Department of Title I Evaluation Services, evaluating projects funded under Title I of the federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965. Assistance in evaluation design, instrument development, data analysis, and editorial matters was provided by members of the Division of Instructional Research and Development Services. Over the past nine years, comprehensive evaluations of Philadelphis's Title I program have been undertaken both systemwide and project by project. They reveal that, although relatively new, Title I projects have enabled administrators and teachers to create favorable learning environments, and to reverse some of the historic trends toward drastic pupil underachievement. Our evaluations indicate also that parental participation and positive community attitudes have increased dramatically. This volume contains the technical reports of individual Title I project evaluations. It contains extensive information about each project's rationale, expected outcomes, mode of operation, previous evaluative findings, current implementation, and attainment of its objectives. In addition, the reader will be able to gain insight into the extensive evaluation activities that are intimately linked to each project. (Author/JM)
