The Observation and Testing Report on the Sesame Street Program.
To evaluate the effect of the children's television program "Sesame Street" on Chicano viewers and to identify areas for improvement, the Children's Television Workshop contracted with the Chicano Studies Center at the University of California at Los Angeles to provide the following services: (1) establish observation sites in the Los Angeles area to evaluate the reactions of Chicano children; (2) read and evaluate "Sesame Street" scripts and suggest ways to make content more accessible to Chicano children and more reinforcing of the Chicano culture; (3) pre- and post-test 19 Chicano children to determine the effects of watching 4 weeks of programs. This report: (1) describes the criteria for evaluating programs, and gives examples of actual program evaluations; (2) describes the observation instruments and methodology; and (3) lists the results of the observations.
