Austin Independent School District, TX. Office of Research and Evaluation.
A guide for administrators' use in determining Elementary Secondary Education Act Title I eligibility of students in their schools is divided into five sections. Section I describes four rules which must be followed in identifying Title I students, and which will be monitored during the year by consultants visiting the school. Section II suggests a step-by-step procedure for selecting Title I students in accordance with the current law and regulations. Section III lists the general criteria for Title I eligibility. Section IV provides a flowchart to simplify the process of describing how to obtain test scores for students who enter school without them. Section V provides a procedure for retesting students whose test scores are clearly much higher or lower than the student's classroom performance would indicate. In addition, appendices are provided which give directions for administering the: (1) Boehm Test of Basic Concepts; (2) Metropolitan Readiness Test; (3) California Achievement Tests (CAT) Level 1; (4) CAT Level 2; and (5) CAT Level 3. Copies of supplementary test score records are provided. (RL)
