The Texas State Compensatory Education program (SCE) had three components: (1) basic skills; (2) bilingual education; and (3) planning--including specification of competencies for grades K-6, Title I model program development; and coordination of Title I, Title I Migrant, and SCE for effective use of federal resources. Because of the diversity of programs planned by the ten schools in the basic skills component and the four schools participating in the bilingual component, the SCE evaluation was not objectives-based; instead, it focused on thirty decision questions regarding the program's potential for generalization to other funding sources and other schools, since refunding of SCE was unlikely. Most of the questions addressed the planning of SCE programs and staff development workshops, implementation (in general and by individual schools), and the role of area directors and instructors. Several questions dealt with academic achievement as measured by the California Achievement Tests and the Boehm Test of Basic Concepts. The remaining questions involved attendance, student attitudes, and use of SCE instructional materials. (CP)
