Gottfredson, Gary D., Ed.
This report focuses on the School Action Effectiveness Study (SAES), the national evaluation of the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention's Alternative Education Program. It presents the history, start-up activities, successes, and problems encountered during the first year of the 17 action projects. In the first section, the report discusses general topics that summarize the entire evaluation. Chapter 2 discusses the record of research in creating organizational change and delinquency prevention. Chapter 3 summarizes the conditions that lead to rigorous summative evaluation, while Chapter 4 describes the program development evaluation model used in the study. Chapter 5 presents some of the measures used in SAES to provide diagnostic information and to measure delinquency. Chapter 6 provides a brief sketch of the research designs for the 17 projects along with an overview of the formative evaluation results. The second section provides a narrative description of each project. A subject index, a name index, and a section containing abstracts of the narrative project descriptions are appended. (JAC)
