ESEA Title I Program for 1972-73 Public Schools of the District of Columbia: Volume I. Evaluation Report.
Beard, Eugene; McCoy, Shelvie A. L.
In order to evaluate ESEA Title I programs conducted during the 1973 school year, an evaluation methodology was developed to provide input from a variety of school personnel and community residents. Specifically the evaluation design provided: (1) qualitative and quantitative data concerning the effectiveness and efficiency of specific Title I components; (2) a cost-effectiveness analysis of the three types of reading materials utilized in the Competitive Reading Partnership; (3) descriptive data concerning the role and effectiveness of instructional and support personnel; (4) assessments of the Title I program by individuals and groups with direct and indirect involvement in its operation; (5) specific recommendations for strengthening future Title I programs, including recommendations concerning particular components and personnel groups. In addition to the actual evaluation, procedures were developed to sustain an effective management and communications system for the Title I program. See TM 004 506 for the instrumentation and statistical methodology employed in this evaluation. (Author/DEP)
