Far West Lab. for Educational Research and Development, Berkeley, CA.
This brief report is a compilation of academic test score data collected on children in the Responsive Educational Programs sponsored by the Far West Laboratory. In some cases sampling was done and statistical tests run. In other situations sampling was not possible and comparisons are made with national norms. Diagrams and figures are given for children's pre- and post-program performance on measures of the following types: reading performance of grade school children, reading readiness of first grade children, arithmetic achievement of kindergarten children, Stanford Achievement test scores of third grade children, Wechsler Intelligence test scores of kindergarten children, Stanford subtest scores of second grade children, Raven's Progressive Matrices test scores of children in grades one through three, Caldwell Preschool Inventory test scores of Head Start children, and scores on the Boehm Test of Basic Concepts for Head Start children. The reader is referred to references at the end of the report for complete description of the data collection and analyses. (Author/SS)
