Improving Basic Skills in Reading and Mathematics. Final Evaluation Report 1984-1985.
District of Columbia Public Schools, Washington, DC. Div. of Quality Assurance.
The purpose of the basic skills component of this project was to improve the reading and mathematics skills of 2085 junior high school and middle or extended elementary school students who were assigned to transition teachers for help. The target population for the Mathematics Teacher Resource Development consisted of teachers who (1) needed further training for certification as mathematics teachers, (2) needed to upgrade their skills, or (3) were potential mathematics teachers who might be recruited to teach in the schools. In the basic skills component, teachers, using criterion-referenced tests, were to determine and record areas in which students needed extra help. An individualized program was to be established for students, and extra instructional materials would be supplied. The Mathematics Teacher Resource Development was set up to implement teacher training and upgrading in mathematics by providing inservice and college level courses. This final report on the project includes agreements and discrepancies between intended and observed outcomes for each stated objective of the project. Appendices include samples of the evaluation instruments and charts displaying evaluation results. (JD)
