Title I Individualized Mathematics Program, Grades 4-8, Final Evaluation Report.
Harris, Linda F.
This report evaluates the 1974-75 experimental individualized mathematics program operated as a supplementary activity within the Memphis City Schools curriculum for grades 4-8. This is a compensatory program to meet the needs of students residing in areas where socio-economic conditions contribute to low achievement. From the 4,700 students, random samples were selected for the experimental and control groups. The project staff consisted of one project director, one resource teacher, 104 Title I teachers, and one clerk-typist. The assessment procedures utilized in evaluating the program were based upon process and product evaluation. The process evaluation gave qualitative evidence about the program based upon responses to questionnaires by project teachers and principals, classroom teachers, and parents. Additional qualitative evidence was obtained from a workshop for teachers. Product evaluation was obtained by measuring three performance objectives via the Metropolitan Achievement Test, The Attitude Inventory, and Individual Progress Reports. The report draws the conclusion that all grades achieved two of three objectives set and that students, parents, project teachers, classroom teachers, and principals were very supportive of the program.
