Report of Evaluation, Title I Mathematics Program, 1981-82.
Tompkins, John F.
In the 1981-82 school year, the Des Moines Title I math program served 1261 students in grades 1-8. The students mastered over 80 percent of the program objectives and achieved an increase in percentile rank from fall to spring. According to the results of attitude measurements, junior high school students' attitudes toward learning became more positive over the school year. Personal contacts between Title I teachers and parents of the students they serve occurred with the frequency necessary to achieve all objectives except one. Attendance records indicated that secondary Title I students attended 88.9 percent of the days possible while non-Title I students at the same buildings attended 91.0 percent. The process of setting goals for students to work toward in the secondary program was reported as being a "motivator as well as a positive self-concept enhancer for students and teachers." (CMG)
