Parents, Teachers and Evaluators: A Partnership to Enhance Home and School Learning Environments.
Haertel, Geneva D.; Talmage, Harriet
Based on the Walberg educational productivity model--which relates one quantifiable educational outcome to a range of inputs--a research project was undertaken to determine the impact of school desegregation on the academic achievement of third and sixth grade students in a Chicago suburb. A four-phase cooperative effort was instituted, involving parents, school personnel, and university staff. Achievement test scores were used as the quantifiable outcome; and home environment, instructional quality, quantity of instruction, and classroom learning environment were selected as input productivity factors. The project was composed of four phases: research and theory building; development and testing; practical application of the findings; and extension and projection of the findings. Phase two was composed of five stages: (1) preparing the collaborative effort; (2) selecting variables associated with the productivity factors; (3) selecting instruments to measure each factor; (4) field testing the instruments; and (5) examining test results. In phase three, data analyses were used to explore better home and school intervention strategies. Phase four objectives were comprised of continuing cooperative relationships; providing home and school strategies; documenting effective strategies; and serving as a model for other school districts. (Preliminary findings and comments about action research are included.) (MH)
