URRD Final Report. Report No. 78-17.
This is the final evaluation report for the Urban, Rural, Racial, Disadvantaged Educational Programs (URRD) conducted in Seattle, Washington during the 1977-78 school year. URRD programs are defined as State funded efforts designed to provide services to students who are not succeeding in school because of disadvantaged, minority, or poverty backgrounds. Four specific evaluation areas are addressed: (1) URRD programs effectiveness as measured by State standards; (2) the average number of student absences, credits earned, and/or bilingual test performance in URRD programs; (3) academic gains of participating students; and (4) the degree of success in meeting individual program objectives. Data regarding these criteria are presented for five URRD program categories: re-entry motivation, preschool education, Indian education, academic achievement, and bilingual/bicultural education. Study results are summarized and recommendations for program and evaluation improvement are made. (APM)
