A Comprehensive Analysis of Impact of HEP/CAMP Program Participation. HEP/CAMP National Evaluation Project. Research Report No. 3.
Riley, Gary L.
The report is a comprehensive presentation of High School Equivalency Programs (HEP) and College Assistance for Migrants Programs (CAMP) National Evaluation Project findings with particular emphasis on determining the accumulative educational and career impacts of having participated in a HEP or CAMP program. Part 1 provides an overview of the national project and its research design and summarizes program and student characteristics. Part 2 contains an analysis of the relationship between individual background characteristics and student outcomes and the extent to which the programs helped students master basic skills. Part 3 analyzes the relationship between program characteristics (affiliation, residential environment, age, and size) and student outcomes. Part 4 presents the accumulative effects of program participation. Part 5 discusses the implications of the study for program policies and practices including the "up or out" syndrome, developmental versus remedial approaches, postsecondary linkages, objectives as keys to performance, multi-year funding, program renewal strategies, funding support and cost-benefits, and longitudinal data maintenance. Appendices contain survey design and sampling procedures, questionnaires, a brief description of the project's products and a list of HEP and CAMP programs (1985-86). (NEC)
