Junior-Senior High Tutor/Aide Program at Malcolm X Elementary School, ESEA Title III Evaluation. Final Report.
Porter, Thomas J.; Hamilton, Edwin
This project proposes to select, train, and utilize junior and senior high school students from neighboring schools as tutors for their young peers and as aides to the instructional team. Projected results of the program are that tutees will improve skills in reading, math, and special interests; that there will be an increase in individualized instruction and specific assistance to the tutees; that self-image and self-concepts of tutor/aides and tutees will increase; and that there will be improvements in the teaching/learning environment. Since this evaluation comes at mid-point of a projected two-year project, major emphases of this evaluation focuses on the effectiveness of the program in the meeting the projected goals at mid-point and abstracting from the first year's experience that essential information needed for planning and decision making during the second project year. The evaluation methodology is discussed and results indicate: the project is on the way to meeting the goals, internal documentation is more than adequate, teachers indicate a positive effect on the instructional program, administration and management is sound, tutor/aides express satisfaction with roles, all students show an increase in reading and math skills, and teachers and tutor/aides are fairly congruent in their perceptions of the project.
