Iowa Annual Evaluation Report for Migrant Programs. Fiscal Year 1979.
Bottenfield, James F.; And Others
Tabular data and narrative evaluations describe the goals and achievements of Iowa's migrant education programs (three summer session and five regular session programs) operated during fiscal year 1979. A program overview provides summary information on staff utilization, numbers of students served, inservice training activities, medical services provided for students, parent involvement, procedures for recruiting students and establishing their educational needs, cooperation between schools and other agencies, and methods of disseminating information about migrant program activities. Statewide instructional information is presented in tables showing curriculum areas, ages and numbers of students participating, and numbers of students meeting the standards of success in each area. Student success was measured by standardized tests, teacher-made tests, criterion referenced tests, checklists, and observation. Narrative evaluations for three programs provide a brief program description, a summary of objectives and success in meeting objectives, and recommendations based on program strengths and weaknesses. Information about academic gains, enrollment, and attendance is provided in tables. Serving predominately Spanish-speaking students, the programs stressed language development and employed bilingual, bicultural methods. (JH)
