A Process Evaluation of Title I Summer In-Services and Mathematics Criterion Referenced Testing Program.
Schilling, Sandra Hobson
The Minneapolis Public School system was awarded an Elementary Secondary Education Act (ESEA) Title I grant. The purpose of these funds was the further development of insights, awareness, competence, and skill toward making living and learning effective for eligible students. Two programs are described: (1) inservice teacher training for the East, North, and West Areas; and (2) a Mathematics Criterion Referenced Testing Program. Evaluation of the inservice program focused on two major concerns: (1) the process of implementing the inservice programs, and (2) the perceived need for the future inservices. Tables provide summaries of participant responses to Title I services and provide a comparison between staff with less than one year or no experience with Title I children and the total group, as reflected by the mean rating of desire for more inservice factor. The Mathematics Criterion Referenced Testing Program was developed to: (1) produce a computational math skills testing program, (2) identify Title I children in mathematics, (3) evaluate the progress of Title I children, and (4) evaluate alternative math programs. The report presented here focuses on the development of operational guidelines. (Author/BJG)
