Pilot Enrichment Program. Final Evaluation Report.
Chicago Board of Education, IL. Dept. of Research and Evaluation.
This is an evaluation of the second year (1980) of the Pilot Enrichment Program (PEP), an intensive college preparatory program for underprepared ninth and tenth grade high school students in Chicago, Illinois. Changes in student academic achievement and adaptability to school were measured for 74 PEP participants and compared to data from a control group of 51 students. Test scores, attendance rates, and grade averages were evaluated. In pre- and posttest scores on reading, mathematics, and language arts, significant differences between the two groups were found only in mathematics, with PEP students scoring higher. Attendance rates were also higher among PEP students, but no significant differences in grade point averages were found between control and PEP students. This report also provides the results of a parent and student survey, which indicated that both parents and students perceived PEP favorably. Recommendations for program improvement conclude the evaluation. (Author/APM)
