Saginaw Public Schools, MI. Dept. of Evaluation Services.
This report presents results of the first product evaluation of the Saginaw School District's Michigan Early Childhood Education Preschool (MECEP) program. The MECEP operated at five elementary sites, with 154 pupils participating. The goal of the program was to provide 4-year-olds with an environment that would enable them to develop school readiness skills. Program component areas included cognitive, psychomotor, affective, parent participation and education, curriculum, staff development, and community collaboration and participation components. Data were collected on student cognitive, affective, and motor development; parent participation; curriculum; community collaboration and participation; and staff development. Evaluation data indicated that the program met most objectives in the cognitive domain and all objectives in affective and motor domains. All parent participation and education, curriculum, and community collaboration and participation objectives were met. All in all, 24 of 26 objectives were attained. Recommendations for program improvement are offered. Program objectives, the Saginaw Objective Referenced Test (PK-Sort), the affective rating scale, summary data tables, and other related materials are appended. (RH)
