Evaluation of Title I ESEA Projects, 1980-1981: Abstracts. Report No. 8203.
Philadelphia School District, PA. Office of Research and Evaluation.
As part of the annual evaluation of Title I Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) projects, this report was produced. It is organized into six sections: (1) Programmatic Goals; (2) Evaluation Techniques; (3) Findings; (4) Discussion; (5) Summary and Conclusions; and (6) Abstracts of Project Reports. The abstracts are based on annual technical reports issued by the Department of Federal Evaluation Resource Services, evaluating projects funded under ESEA Title I. Programmatic goals are organized into six project categories: comprehensive reading and mathematics, programs for limited-English-speaking-ability pupils, social sciences, supportive services, and nonpublic school projects. While the long term effects of Title I intervention are positive, the results herein reported appear moderated, the effect being more pronounced in mathematics than in reading. To the degree that standardized test scores constitute evidence of the impact of programs upon students, the data indicate that positive changes are taking place. (Author/GK)
