Follow Through Pupil Achievement Characteristics in Philadelphia, 1974-1975. Vol. I: Cross-Sectional Data. Report No. 7664.
Welsh, James B.
This report is a cross-sectional analysis of the 1974-1975 mid-year performance of Follow Through, Non-Follow Through and District groupings of pupils in the Philadelphia School District. The report is divided into four parts: Part I offers comparisons of each Follow Through grouping with all other groupings in terms of mean score differences, percentages scoring below the national sixteenth percentile, and percentages scoring at or above the national fiftieth percentile; Part II is a brief inter-model comparison in terms of rankings on mean standard scores; Part III compares Spring 1974 and Spring 1975 test performance on the Stanford Early School Achievement Test (Kindergarten) and on the California Achievement Test (Grade 1-3); Part IV provides test data for the fourth-grade pupils enrolled in Follow Through schools. Results indicate that the positive program effects observed in grades K and 1 in 1973-1974 have been extended to grade 2 in 1974-1975 for the total program aggregate, and that during the program years (K-3) the Behavior Analysis and Parent Implemented models continue to exhibit superior performance among the models, followed closely by the Bank Street and EDC models. The Appendix volume of basic data tables accompanying this report is available upon request from the Office of Research and Evaluation, The School District of Philadelphia. (Author/JMB)
