Morse Crisis Intervention Center--Project Advance. Title III Project Final Evaluation Report.
District of Columbia Public Schools, Washington, DC. Dept. of Research and Evaluation.; Commonwealth Learning, Inc., Alexandria, VA.
This final report provides an evaluation of Project Advance, an attempt at providing supplemental services to the Morse Crisis Intervention Center in the Washington, D.C. Public School System. The Morse Center was established to handle students who had to be removed from public junior high schools because of disruptive behavior. Project Advance provided the following special services: (1) psychotherapy to alleviate or minimize disturbing behavior, (2) individualized instruction using the open classroom technique, and (3) enrichment activities through which hyperactivity and tensions could be relieved. Conclusions about the impact of the project were somewhat unclear because of the lack of good pre-and posttest data on changes in student behavior. Several limitations of the study were noted, as were problems with the lack of clarity and specificity of purpose of the Morse Center itself. Several recommendations are presented as a result of the study's data. (Author/PC)
