State Compensatory Education Summer School Program: 1982. Final Evaluation Report.
Mangino, Evangelina; Ligon, Glynn
This report presents the evaluation findings for the 1982 Austin Independent School District's State Compensatory Education Summer School Program. It contains a description of the program, information about the data collection procedures employed in the evaluation, and a discussion of the student outcomes achieved by the program. Achievement results indicate that seventh graders benefited from attending summer school. The benefit is higher when students are promoted to grade eight. A better assessment of the effect of summer school on eighth graders may be possible in the future if the District adopts a test that allows a continuous analysis of achievement gains from junior to senior high school. The combined effect of attending summer school and being promoted to the next grade on one hand, and not attending summer school and being retained seems to account for the significant difference in achievement gains between summer school and nonsummer school students.
