URRD 1976-77 Final Report. Report No. 77-17.
This report on the Urban, Rural, Racial Disadvantaged Educational Programs (URRD) conducted in Seattle, Washington in 1977-78 examines the effectiveness of the programs on raising student achievement levels. Data presented in the report lead to the following conclusions: (1) the programs met two of the four objectives that the State of Washington uses to define effectiveness; (2) mean test scores in reading and mathematics achievement represented less than one year's growth for most programs; (3) percentile gains of URRD students in reading and mathematics achievement as measured by the Metropolitan Achievement Tests are below those made by many non-program students; (4) two participating schools met a particularly low number of their program objectives; and (5) there appears to be no relationship between the amount of the URRD grant and the number of students showing percentile gains.
