Education as Experimentation: Evaluation of the Follow Through Planned Variation Model. Volume 2B: Monographs and Appendices. Final Report.
Cline, Marvin G.; And Others
This volume presents monographs relating to the second annual report of the National Evaluation of Follow Through. Monograph 1 is concerned with site-by-site analyses of academic achievement scores for children after two years in the same Follow Through program. Conclusions dealing with first grade vs. kindergarten effects, site effects, and the difficulty in relating findings to specific programs are offered. Monograph 2, which describes the background characteristics and attitudes of the teachers associated with the Follow Through programs, is based on responses to the Spring 1973 Teacher Questionnaire. Monograph 3 focuses on school and community characteristics. Monograph 4 describes Head Start Planned Variation/Follow Through (HSPV/FT) data weaknesses and constraints, and attempts to compare test scores of "treated" and "untreated" children. Appendices and tables containing related data make up approximately one-third of the document. (ED)
