Follow Through Resource Center: Community School 77. Final Evaluation Report, 1980-1981.
New York City Board of Education, Brooklyn, NY. Office of Educational Evaluation.
This is a final report on the Follow Through Resource Center at Community School 77 in the Bronx (New York). The Center was established in 1977 to disseminate information about the University of Kansas behavior analysis Follow Through model. The report discusses the program's activities during 1980-81, and includes an evaluation of the Center's success in dissemination of program information, demonstration of the program, and pre-service training as well as the impact of the training on new adoption sites. A participant evaluation form, behavior analysis implementation check list for adopting sites and the questionnaire used for inservice participants are appended. The center's activities include the following components: (1) individualized instruction; (2) positive motivation; (3) continuous assessment of student progress; and (4) parent participation in classroom instruction and educational planning. The results of the evaluation indicate that most of the components of the behavior analysis model were implemented at the two adoption sites surveyed and that eleven new adoptions were achieved. Likewise, information about the model was disseminated through a variety of channels and resulted in an expanded audience. It is suggested, however, that more follow-up training time is needed for pre-service training workshops. (JCD)
