Alabama State Dept. of Education, Montgomery.
Preschool, elementary, and secondary programs are evaluated in this report. Part 1 of the report consists of the following 1975 statistics: operation and services, dissemination, evaluation, a listing of major problem areas, the interrelationship of Title I with other federal programs, nonpublic schools, a general evaluation of the projects, changes in program approval, other Title I activities, teacher training, parent and community involvement, advisory councils, number of years participants were in the Title I programs prior to 1975, and a summary of Title I programs. Part 2 discusses the testing programs and shows results by subject and grade. Special reports and case studies are included in Part 3. As a result of changing methods of teaching, inservice training, etc., the average progress made is not as great as had been anticipated. Although the percentage of students making over one year's progress increased, the number making progress above the baseline of seven years progress remains the same. Of the 71,902 students in the reading program for nine months in grades 1-12 who took pre- and posttests, 28.61 percent show more than 1.5 years of gain, 52.04 percent more than 1.5 years of gain, and 70.7 gain over seven months during the seven months (average time between testings) of participation. The overall gain in seven months between testing in grades 2-8 in readng and mathematics is 1.1. The appendix contains the bylaws of Title I coordinators' council. (Author/AM)
