Academic Performance, Attendance, and Expectations of Indian Students in Public Schools. Monograph 1.
Development Associates, Inc., Arlington, VA.
First in a series, the monograph provides a detailed description of the variety of data collected concerning student achievement and attendance during a 1980-1983 evaluation of Indian Education Act Title IV Part A programs. Data included the results of standardized achievement tests; anecdotal evidence from parents, project staff, and others; ratings of project-related academic gain by parents, teachers, and LEA (local education agency) staff; tutor ratings of tutored students; and student ratings of project assistance. The monograph presents the data in three major parts. Part A, Academic Performance in Public Schools, includes separate sections concerning a meta-analysis of achievement test scores; a description of the formal project academic activities; a detailed analysis of 1981 achievement test scores of Indian students at Part A projects; and ratings by tutors, parents, teachers, students, and staff of the impact of Part A projects on student achievement. Part B, Public School Attendance and Retention, includes separate sections on results of longitudinal analyses of data for student attendance from 1976-1980; analyses of teacher, staff, and parent ratings of project impact on student attendance; and Indian student retention. Part C presents two sections addressing the post-secondary knowledge, aspiration, and experiences of Indian students. (SB)
