This report contains the results of the second year (1975-76) of a five year longitudinal study to determine the effectiveness of Title I programs for disadvantaged students in Seattle, Washington's Public Schools. The report attempts to identify Title I student characteristics and determine which educational variables affect academic performance. Research and evaluation focused on the following issues: (1) student and program characteristics; (2) achievement test score pattern; (3) reading and math achievement by program; (4) transfer of learning from compensatory education to regular classroom programs; (5) the effect of socioeconomic and population characteristics on academic achievement; and (6) instructional variables related to the success of Title I students. A summary of findings, conclusions, and recommendations provides a brief synopsis of the major results and implications of the study. (Author/APM)
