ECIA, Chapter 1 Early Childhood Education Program in the Portland Public Schools. 1984-85 Evaluation Report.
The Chapter 1 Early Childhood Education (Preschool) Program in The Portland Public Schools (Oregon) provides educationally disadvantaged children with the experiences needed to ameliorate the disadvantages as they enter kindergarten. This year-end evaluation report contains both the statistical report forms with student test results and a narrative supplementary report for the 1984-85 preschool program. The narrative report contains: (1) a program description, including organization, student characteristics, recruitment and attendance, facilities and materials, daily activities, and project costs; (2) evaluation methodology and findings, which are organized according to program goals in the subject areas of language, arithmetic, small motor skills, and social skills as measured by the Record of Goals Mastery; (3) the follow-up study of former program students in kindergarten and grade 3; (4) comments on classroom observations conducted to examine both curriculum and instruction; and (5) summary and conclusions. Preschool evaluation results are more favorable than earlier years, with students making noticeable gains in academic areas. Follow-up study results are encouraging, but mixed. The Records of Goal Mastery Form and the Student Rating Form (used in the follow-up study) are appended. (BS)
