Utah Migrant Education Annual Summer Evaluation Report, 1988.
Utah State Office of Education, Salt Lake City.
Utah's migrant education program provided educational services to 1,027 K-12 students in programs at 10 sites during the summer of 1988. Nine of the programs were conducted in the summer only and one was conducted year round. Programs ranged in duration from 28 to 50 days. Students were provided with academic basics as well as cultural, vocational, and recreational activities. Health services were also provided, together with nutrition, activities to nurture, self-actualization, and other services designed to help students to assimilate into their communities. The Wide Range Achievement Test, Revised (WRAT-R) was administered as a pre- and post-treatment measure. Results were reported for 404 students who were present for both the pre- and post-tests. Spelling and reading improved nonsignificantly, but significant achievement was reported in arithmetic. Records of children enrolled in the programs were entered into the Migrant Student Record Transfer System, a national computer network facilitating the transfer of migrant student records. On-site evaluations are included in this report, summarizing the observations, findings, and recommendations for each program location made by the monitoring teams. Demographic information and test results are listed in 20 tables. (ALL)
