Goldberg, Isadore; John, Thomas
This final report presents an evaluation of the Designing and Implementing Programs for the Little School Component which is a program designed to develop, implement, and disseminate a program of individualized instruction at the Howard D. Woodson Senior High School. The purpose of the program is to improve academic achievement and student attitudes. This program is a third year continuation of the program initiated in 1972-73. Original students were selected in 1972-73 from student listings supplied by feeder-school counselors. The 300 students originally entering as tenth graders in 1972-73 have continued in the program and are now in their senior year. The third year program was expected to complete the development of pilot exercises for staff and students alike in the development and implementation of individualized programs. Included in the evaluation are a description of the project, methods and procedures, and data analysis and results. The latter includes a comparative analysis of student attitudes, student reactions to the component, data on absences, standardized test results, the individualized curriculum for the component, teacher reactions to the component, teaching methods, teacher ratings of their classes, staff development, and teacher evaluation of the component.
