Interim Report Concerning Schools Involved in the Comprehensive Basic Skills Review Process.
Ogden, Evelyn; And Others
The Comprehensive Basic Skills Program Review was designed by the New Jersey State Department of Education to provide a diagnosis of problems contributing to inadequate achievement in the basic skills. Local program reviews followed the state developed process and were conducted by many schools. The process analyzed the existing school programs and practices in relationship to the factors that are associated with successful achievement in basic skills. Preliminary analyses of program reviews showed that, although schools were making sincere efforts to improve educational programs, certain areas needed improvement. Following the completion of the evaluation process, remedial plans were developed and implemented by each of the 169 schools reviewed. Subsequent reviews undertaken in 1981 demonstrated that dramatic gains were made in basic skills achievement. (Author/MK)
