1972-73 Evaluation of Project Components; Elementary and Secondary Education Act, Title I-Maui District.
Hawaii Univ., Honolulu. School of Social Work.
This report is the result of an evaluation of the Elementary Secondary Education Act Title I programs operated in the Maui District Schools, at the request of the State of Hawaii Department of Education. The evaluation was based on examinations of written documents, i.e., component project proposals, the analysis of achievement test results and other pertinent data, interviews with appropriate school personnel, interviews with parents of the participating students, and direct observations of classroom activities related to the component projects being evaluated. Twelve schools involving 12 projects and 17 professional and paraprofessional instructors were involved in the Title I programs of Maui District. Approximately 311 educationally deprived pupils were served by these educators. The Title I program consisted of nine classroom-based remedial projects and three preschool projects. Completely adequate, reliable, and valid data were lacking for sufficient statistical analysis. Subjective opinion was frequently offered in lieu of accurate and objective data. It was suggested that more standardization and organization of testing and data collection procedures be developed within and between the schools. While all projects appeared to be beneficial for the pupil's education, more effective programs should be developed in future years. (Author/JM)
