State Bilingual and ECIA Chapter 1 Migrant Product Evaluation Report 1987-88.
Claus, Richard N.; Quimper, Barry E.
The 1987-88 school year was the ninth year that students in the State Bilingual and Migrant programs were assessed in reading and mathematics using a norm referenced test. This is the second year that the new California Achievement Test (CAT) Form E, normed in the Spring of 1985, has been used for program evaluation purposes. The locally adopted performance standard was that grade level post-test mean percentile scores would evidence improvement over pre-test scores. Overall, results show decreases from the previous year in the percent of grade levels meeting the performance standard in both reading and mathematics. For the State Bilingual Program, the decrease was the same. For the Migrant Program, the decrease was less in reading than in mathematics. The results of this product evaluation were combined with the results of a process evaluation to generate recommendations to improve the implementation of next year's programs. Statistical data are included in 13 tables. The appendices provide a count of program participants, an explanation of the procedure for the identification of students eligible for program participation, and a table showing mean percentile gain/loss in reading and math by building and grade for 1-12 state Bilingual and Migrant, spring 1987-spring 1988.
