Interest in School and Learning. A Guide to the Analysis and Interpretation of EQA Scores and Related Intervention Techniques. Guide to Strategies for Improvement, Goal 4. First Edition.
Guerriero, Carl A.
This document is designed to assist school district personnel in the identification of intervention strategies that have a good probability of increasing the district's mean score on the Goal IV Educational Quality Assessment (EQA) instrument. Appropriate educational research has been reviewed and distilled into seven propositions that are applicable to the real world of basic education. In addition to these propositions, intervention techniques that may affect Goal IV (student interest in school and learning) are described. The interventions, in most cases, are widely discussed in the literature and are being used in school districts throughout the nation. An appendix contains bibliographies related to these strategies, which include continuous progress plans, team teaching, open education, learning stations, student contracting, individualized instruction, simulation and gaming, programmed instruction, and peer tutoring. The final section considers related innovative programs resulting from Elementary and Secondary Education Act Title III and describes a publication that can help identify school districts using these programs. Deciding which of the propositions and which of the intervention techniques are appropriate is left to the school district staff. (Author/IRT)
