Summer School for Retainees, 1982. Evaluation Design.
Austin Independent School District, TX. Office of Research and Evaluation.
The evaluation design for the Austin Independent School District 1982 summer school program for elementary retainees is described. The evaluation is meant to focus on short-term skill mastery in reading and mathematics and the long-term achievement growth of the participants. Separate reading objectives and materials in Spanish and English language arts for Limited English Proficiency students are planned. Among the relevant evaluation questions and objectives to determine program effectiveness are whether the structure of summer school will be appropriate for future application, and whether alterations will be necessary. Information sources for data to be used in projected decisions will include student mastery files; project files and records; teacher, parent, and director surveys; Iowa Tests of Basic Skills files; observations; and mastery tests. Evaluation activity time resource allocations and dissemination plans are provided. The AISD Office of Research and Evaluation will report findings in the fall of 1982 and the summer of 1983. (CM)
