Title I Final Report. Report No. 78-27.
Corwin, Susan; And Others
This report analyzes data to determine the effectiveness of Seattle, Washington's Title I program during the 1977-78 school year. Information is included on the following topics: (1) the demographic characteristics of the population served by Title I; (2) the success of the Title I program as measured by increases in achievement scores from pretest to posttest; (3) Title I program cost per student and comparisons with other compensatory education programs; and (4) the opinion of the Title I staff regarding inservice training. The report indicates that Title I students were more frequently black, male, and not living with both parents than were students in the school district as a whole. Test scores show that the program achieved an overall mean percentile increase on both reading and mathematics achievement tests. It was determined that of the three major funding sources in compensatory education, Title I programs had the highest cost per student. The paper states that Title I staff who received Instructional Theory Into Practice (ITIP) inservice training during the 1977-78 school year were generally satisfied with the training and felt that the training had been useful in the classroom.
