Saginaw Public Schools, MI. Dept. of Evaluation Services.
The results of a summative evaluation of the 1988-89 Prekindergarten Program of Saginaw, Michigan public schools, which served 448 childlren at 13 elementary schools are reported. The major evaluation question was: Did the program attain the objectives that it set out to accomplish? To answer this question, the Prekindergarten Saginaw Objective Reference Test (PK-SORT) was used to assess student achievement. The PK-SORT included 31 items dealing with psychomotor and cognitive program areas. Also used was the Parents as Partners Sheet, an instrument which called for each teacher to record the amount and type of parent participation that occurred during the year. PK-SORT data showed that the program met 7 of the 13 cognitive and psychomotor objectives. In addition, all three objectives dealing with the Parents as Partners program component were met. Recommendations for program improvement are offered. Chapter 1 prekindergarten objectives, tables of data, participant lists, and the PK-SORT are appended. (RH)
