California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento. Office of Program Evaluation and Research.
This report discusses the analysis by the State Department of Education of the statewide evaluation reports of all Elementary Secondary Education Act Title I programs in California for the 1973-74 school year. Students at all grade levels enrolled in ESEA Title I related programs gained more than one month's growth in reading skills for each month of instruction. Successful reading programs included the use of diagnostic/prescriptive materials, individualized instruction within the regular classroom, and assistance from instructional aides. Students in ESEA Title I related programs typically achieved gains equal to or greater than 1.1 months of growth in mathematics for each month of participation. Successful programs frequently reported the value of active participation by instructional aides and parent volunteers in both individualized and group instruction in the regular classroom. The health/auxiliary services component provided pupil personnel, library, and health services. The parent participation and community involvement component provided activities directed toward the improvement of communications between home and school. The intergroup relations component implemented activities designed to minimize isolation between different ethnic, cultural, racial, or social groups. A staff development component was active.
