Analysis of the State of Rhode Island's Compensatory Education Projects from 1969 to Present. Interim Report.
Brittingham, Barbara; And Others
This study outlines progress to date in Rhode Island's compensatory education programs. The study's objectives are to reanalyze existing data on Rhode Island compensatory education programs in order to describe trends in funding patterns, resource allocation and the provision of services from 1969 to present, and to analyze the feasibility of conducting a longitudinal study using existing data on Rhode Island students who have been enrolled in compensatory education programs during the period between 1969-70 and 1974-75. Activities undertaken include: (1) the review of Rhode Island's Title I annual reports by Federal auditors; (2) the review of data gathering instruments by the project staff, for purposes of determining the nature and extent of comparable information; (3) examination of data to determine which variables of interest are available for analysis; (4) an examination of the programatic implications of policy changes; (5) an attempt to resolve ambiguities in data for developing longitudinal files; (6) a study of the continuity of programs at the individual school level; and (7) the analysis of student gains in reading projects as related to factors such as intensity of service and funding level. Some details and problems which need to be addressed are discussed. Uniform variable codes for reading projects and supplementary information sheets are appended to the study. (Author/AM)
