Title I Program Evaluation Report, 1976-77. Report No. 77-18.
Cimler, Edward R.; Meland, Kathy M.
This is an evaluation report for Title I compensatory education programs conducted in Seattle, Washington, in 1976-1977. Demographic and achievement data were collected for 5325 students participating in reading and mathematics programs. The Title I student body was characterized by a high proportion of blacks and many students from poor and single parent families. The program objective of improving students' percentile scores on the Metropolitan Achievement Tests (MAT) was achieved overall, although no substantial relationships were found between achievement gains (pre and post MAT) and teacher related variables, instructional model used, money spent per student, or number of students served. Based on the findings, a number of recommendations are made for change in program characteristics, administration, and evaluation procedures. (APM)
