Education as Experimentation: Evaluation of the Follow Through Planned Variation Model. Volume 2A: Two-Year Effects of Follow Through. Final Report.
Cline, Marvin G.; And Others
This second annual report on the National Evaluation of Follow Through (a continuation of the first report) focuses on the accumulated effects of two years of Follow Through experiences on children who remained with the same sponsors over that time period. Comparisons between Follow Through and Non-Follow Through children at the end of first grade are described. In addition to previously used child and school level analyses, site level analyses are included. Chapter 1 presents a brief overview of the report. Chapter 2 describes sample development, including definition of the current sample, comparison with last year's, and discussion of the problems of sample bias, generalizability and sponsor-to-sponsor comparisons. Chapters 3 and 4 deal with the variables used in the analyses and includes a description of covariance selection and the final covariate set. Chapter 5 presents a description of the samples and kindergarten one-year effects for each of the ten program models. Chapter 6 presents site descriptions and effects and overall two-year effects. Chapter 7 presents conclusions of the evaluation. Appendices, which make up approximately one-third of the document, contain data tables and other supportive materials. (ED)
