Project STAR (Secondary). Disadvantaged Pupil Program Fund. Final Evaluation Report, 1982-83.
Project STAR (Secondary) in the Cleveland Public Schools is designed to improve reading and vocabulary skills for grades 7-9 by training and providing teachers and teacher aides in STAR Learning Centers in 24 secondary schools. Eligible students work in the Learning Centers every day in an individualized, self-paced, audio approach to remedial reading instruction. This final evaluation report for the 1982-83 school year shows that the project successfully provided project teachers and aides with training, and that they provided STAR students with individualized support. Preservice sessions for teachers and aides took place as planned, but because of budget limitations only two of the scheduled inservice sessions were conducted. The single product objective, gains in reading achievement, was not attained by the sample of students whose test scores were analyzed. The project appears to have been effectively implemented; student achievement goals, however, remain unmet. (CMG)
