The Title I, ESEA Program in Minneapolis: 1974-75. An Evaluation.
Clark, Sara; McCormick, Thomas
This report was prepared as partial fulfillment of the evaluation requirements given in the state of Minnesota's Regulations and Guidelines for Title I ESEA. Objectives for the program were given in terms of gains measured by teacher judgement and achievement tests. Results in terms of test data, will be reported at a later time. Results, based solely on needs assessment data, showed that the program failed to meet those objectives which were based on teacher ratings. The percentage of Title I eligible students who had been rated poor or serious in reading and/or math in fall 1974 and were rated one level higher in spring 1975 were from 7 percent to 31 percent below the percentage stated in the objectives. Discussion of the teacher judgment discrepancies suggest that there was no empirical basis for the expected percentages of students given in the objectives who would be rated one level higher in the spring. Descriptions of projects that were active in 1974-75 are included along with a history of the development of the oveall Title I program in Minneapolis. Recommentations will not be made until the achievement test data analysis has been completed. (RC)
