A Process Evaluation of Project Developmental Continuity, Interim Report VII, Volume 3: Assessment of Program Impact Through the Head Start Year.
Granville, Arthur C.; And Others
This interim report, part of a series of documents examining the feasibility of the longitudinal evaluation of Project Developmental Continuity (PDC), presents the results of an analysis of PDC impact at the Head Start level, using Spring 1977 data. PDC is a Head Start Demonstration Program aimed at providing educational and developmental continuity between children's Head Start and primary school experiences. Chapter I provides a brief introduction to the feasibility study. Chapter II describes the methods of data collection and analysis. Chapter III presents the findings of the feasibility study. Characteristics of the sample and the basic instrument battery are described, and summaries are provided of the three developed and tested measures: the classroom observation system, the Preschool Productive Language Assessment Task (PPLAT), and the Adult Language Check, which are not part of the basic battery. Chapter IV examines PDC program treatment effects. No substantial measured difference in progress between PDC and comparison children was found. (Author/RH)
