Report of the Chapter 1 Sustained Effects Study. Education Consolidation and Improvement Act--Chapter 1.
Once every three years, school districts receiving Chapter 1 funds are required to conduct a study of the sustained effects of their Chapter 1 programs. To meet this requirement, the Columbus (Ohio) Public Schools employed a fall-spring test design to determine the degree to which pupils who participated in the Compensatory Language Experiences and Reading (CLEAR) program remained at least at the same level from spring of the treatment year until fall of the next school year. The evaluation sustained effects group consisted of 3,338 elementary and middle school students. The results indicated some decline in all grade levels in reading during the summer months, with grade 6 having the greatest percentage of pupils who maintained their achievement level from the previous spring. The greatest net gains from fall 1985 to fall 1986 were noted for first grade Reading Recovery participants and second, third, and sixth grade CLEAR participants. Pupils from these grade levels substantially improved their fall 1986 achievement levels by spring 1987. (Eight tables and 18 figures are included, and four references are appended.) (SKC)
