Webber School Evaluation Report: School Year 1973-74.
Urbana School District 116, IL.
This evaluation report summarizes data collected from pupil questionnaires, teacher questionniares, and parent interviews on the success of a recently implemented elementary school reorganization plan designed to enhance academic achievement. Five evaluation instruments were developed as a collaborative effort of teachers, parents, evaluators, and district staff, and were administered in October of 1973 and again in May of 1974. The five measures were designed to collect the following data: (1) measure of the school's climate as indicated by student attitudes (Pupil Questionnaire, Student Questionnaire Upper Elementary Level, Student Questionnaire Lower Elementary); (2) information indicating how parents of Webber School children feel about their school (Parent Interview Form); (3) information regarding growth in basic skill areas of math and reading (Base Math Test, Stanford Diagnostic Reading Test); (4) staff perceptions of the extent to which reorganization was implemented according to plan (Webber Teacher Questionniare); and (5) effectiveness of special education organization in eliminating stigma associated with children receiving special services (Sociometric Data Questionnaire). A sample of each of the questionnaires and interview forms is contained in this evaluation report, along with a graphical representation of the results. (CS)
