Title I ESEA, High School; English as a Second Language: 1979-1980. OEE Evaluation Report.
New York City Board of Education, Brooklyn, NY. Office of Educational Evaluation.
The report is an evaluation of the 1979-80 High School Title I English as a Second Language Program. Two types of information are presented: (1) a narrative description of the program which provides qualitative data regarding the program, and (2) a statistical analysis of test results which consists of quantitative, city-wide data. By integrating both types of findings, the report offers an in-depth profile of the program and its educational significance. The narrative description includes a separate perspective on the effectiveness of the program from the point of view of the personnel involved in the program, and based on consultant observations and interviews of program personnel in a selected number of representative schools. Issues of staffing, program coordination, student characteristics and the instructional program are addressed. The statistical information drawn from the program's criterion-referenced test specifies number of skills mastered, rate of success in meeting the evaluation objective, degree of participation and results according to instructional level. Attendance, reason for incomplete data, receipt of counseling and rate of success are analyzed. Conclusions and recommendations are presented based on the descriptive and statistical sections.
