State of Wisconsin Evaluation Conference Summary; E.S.E.A. Title I Migrant Education Programs Summer of 1978.
Wisconsin State Dept. of Public Instruction, Madison. Div. for Management and Planning Services.
In August of 1978 an ESEA (Elementary and Secondary Education Act) Title I education conference was held to obtain an evaluation of the migrant education programs operated in Wisconsin during the summer of 1978. Five forms were used to collect information from the 47 conference participants with specific forms directed toward instructional staff, classroom teachers, project directors, administrators-site coordinators-recruiters, and all participants. Questions were designed to (1) find how much or if the participants knew about a given topic; (2) obtain the participants' evaluation of a given topic; and (3) find out what action the respondent would recommend in a given area. Item content covered program goals and objectives, state plan, role definitions/division of authority, communication patterns, overall program design, program impact, and conference evaluation. When asked to list the greatest assets and weaknesses of the Title I migrant education project, teachers most frequently listed staff and educational opportunities that would otherwise not be offered as positive factors. Student/parent attitudes was the most frequently mentioned negative factor. The most successful materials, games and activities listed by teachers included tapes and cassettes, consonant bingo, finger plays and field trips. Directors were negative in their comments on the Migrant Student Record Transfer System. Tabular data are used to summarize participants' responses in the categories cited. (DS)
