Title IV Program Evaluation, Albuquerque Public School System, Albuquerque, New Mexico, May 1974 and May 1976. Research and Evaluation Report Series No. 48.
Kirkland, Mary; And Others
During May of 1974 and of 1976, needs assessment questionnaires were distributed to American Indian parents to determine their perception of the Title IV Program and its effectiveness. In 1974, 50 parents responded to the questionnaire. In 1976, 37 parents responded to the questionnaire which had been revised. Both years, several of the returned questionnaires were not complete. Therefore, it was assumed that the respondent either did not know the answer or felt unsure and left the answer block unanswered. Among the 1974 findings were: 35 to 38% felt much improvement had come about for their children because of the Program, 35% failed to respond to this item; 58% claimed the Program enabled them to become more involved in the school affairs that affected their children and 40% felt the Program had a significant effect in the educational programs with the Albuquerque Public School System. Some of the 1976 findings were: parents felt the schools were doing somewhere above "little" and should be doing better than "much" to satisfy the Indian student's needs; language arts was ranked the most important subject, followed by counseling and math; and parents felt a greater emphasis should be placed on math programs. This report gives the questionnaires and the responses to each question. (NQ)
