Evaluation of an ESAA Secondary Reading Project.
Grobe, Robert P.; Knecht, Melinda A.
This evaluation study assessed the effectiveness of an Emergency School Aid Act (ESAA) funded Secondary Reading Project (SRP) in aiding secondary students to overcome a lack of developmental skills in reading. General procedures and specific techniques used in the evaluation are outlined and discussed. During the 1973-74 school year ESAA-funded SRP served students in twelve targeted high schools, while Dallas Independent School District (DISD) funded SRP served six nontargeted high schools. Included among the results were data indicating that (a) the most successful schools had numerous paraprofessionals and volunteer tutors, thus reducing the student-adult ratio; (b) the lower the pretest achievement level, the higher the mean gain.
