A Brief Description of a National Evaluation of the ESEA Title I Migrant Program.
The three objectives of this evaluation plan are: (1) to assess the impact of the Elementary Secondary Education Act (ESEA) Title I Migrant Program on the basic skill attainment and school attendance of participants in the second, fourth, and sixth grades; (2) to validate the migrant student counts used in the allocation of funds to the states; and (3) to describe the services and recipients of the ESEA Title I Migrant Program, including the English language facility of participants, the level of achievement in basic skills of participants in the second, fourth, and sixth grades, and the attitudes toward self and school of those in the fourth and sixth grades. This study will also provide evaluative and program management information to members of Congress, U.S. Office of Education officials, and state/local program developers. Three studies are described which have been designed to meet the three objectives in terms of the components of the studies, the methods of collecting the information needed, and the use that will be made of the data gathered. The three studies and their components are: an impact study (student scholastic component), a validation study (full-time equivalency, eligibility verification, and unidentified migrant components), and a descriptive study (project and student descriptive components).
