The U.S. Office of Education Models to Evaluate E.S.E.A. Title I: Experiences after One Year of Use.
Anderson, Janice K.; And Others
In order to assess the impact of Title I programs, models specifying criteria, techniques and methodologies for evaluation were developed. These models prescribe pre- and post-test results for both Title I and non Title I children. This report describes the status of the use of the models, the experience of people who used them during the 1976-77 school year, Federal progress in drafting regulations regarding their use, and the future work planned to improve the quality of the data produced. Specifically, a brief history of the program to develop and encourage the use of models is presented. The work of the Technical Assistance Centers, the number of districts using the models, and projected use are also discussed. State and local level activities are described. A list of recommendations for refinement of materials is included. Simultaneous with the adoption of new techniques by many States and districts is the Office of Education's intent to make their use mandatory by all Title I grantees who offer services in the basic skills to school children in grades 2-12. That process, the public input, and the initial idea about content of regulations are described. Conclusions about various aspects of the Title I evaluation, reporting system, and the program to support its use are also summarized. (Author/GC)
