The evaluation deals with a total of 65 Head Start programs and their families. This report discusses the issues and logistics involved in the evaluation activities which took place during the period from October 1978 through December 1979. Head Start and BES sites were selected, 46 week-long site visits were made, children were selected to serve in control groups, and children in Head Start or BES programs and control group children were tested.
