Preliminary Report on the ECEC Longitudinal Study.
Leonard, Carolyn M.
Reported in this document are the results of a longitudinal study tracing the achievement of nearly 400 students enrolled in the Early Childhood Education Center (ECEC) program for prekindergarten and kindergarten children (from 1976-77 through 1978-79). Progress of these students and their contemporaries was measured by the Portland Public Schools' Achievement Levels Tests, which were administered in the fall and spring at the third-, fourth-, and fifth-grade levels. Analysis of achievement results was presented by grade level for three categorical groupings: total survey group, student status (transfer or resident), and sex of student. Findings and conclusions were suggested, based on a comparison of standardized deviations and gains of the surveyed group and those of the total Portland Public School District. Generally, it was found that the gain made by ECEC students was close to the district average in reading and mathematics and slightly above the district average in language usage. (Author/RH)
