Evaluation Study of the California State Preschool Program.
Hoepfner, Ralph; Fink, Arlene
This report describes the comprehensive evaluation study of the California State Preschool Program which involved elementary school children in educationally disadvantaged areas throughout California. Various test scores of approximately 6000 children in kindergarten, first, and second grade who had previously participated for at least a year in the State Preschool Program were compared to the scores of two other groups of children, those who were not graduates of any identifiable preschool program and those who had attended a Children's Center Program. Evaluation was based on student scores on the Entry Level Test, Cooperative Primary Test, Attitude to School Questionnaire, Student Productivity Index, and attendance records. Comparisons were made between the performance, motivation, and productivity test scores of students. A detailed discussion of the results is included in the report. (CS)
