State ESEA Title I Reports: Review and Analysis of Past Reports, and Development of a Model Reporting System and Format.
Gamel, Nona N.; And Others
The main objective of this study was the development of an evaluation and reporting system that would provide information considered to be meaningful to those involved at the local, district, state, and federal levels. Subobjectives are to determine the amount and type of evaluation information needed at each level to assess the ability and willingness of education agencies to report the information desired by higher levels, and to devise evaluation techniques and procedures which could be implemented in Title I settings. The evaluation and reporting system was presented to appropriate personnel in nine State Departments of Education and to an advisory panel representing additional local and state agencies. Attitudes toward the system are reported as very favorable and are interpreted as indicators of success in achieving the study's objectives. A followup project has been initiated that will involve, among other things, further refinement of the system developed. Ways of extending its flexibility have been identified, and work is in progress to enhance both the utility and acceptability of the system. Presently, the prognosis is seen to appear excellent in that the system will be widely adopted in the next few years resulting in vastly improved Title I evaluation and reporting practices. Tables providing raw data and appendices containing the instruments and scales used are included. (Author/AM)
