Policy Studies Associates, Inc., Washington, DC.
The Elementary and Secondary School Improvement Amendments of 1988 (P.L. 100-297) require the U.S. Department of Education to conduct a national longitudinal study of Chapter 1 of the Elementary Secondary Education Act (ESEA). The department commissioned the selection of experts qualified to provide design suggestions and advice for the national longitudinal study and related activities. This collection of 12 planning papers was developed in association with the longitudinal evaluation of the compensatory education program mandated by the ESEA, and the papers represent the experts' reviews of their planning briefings. The papers include: (1) "Synthesis of Planning Papers" (Elizabeth R. Reisner); (2) "Designing a Chapter 1 Study: Implications from Research on Preschool Education" (Steve Barnett); (3) "Adjoining Randomized Experiments to Longitudinal Surveys in Chapter I Evaluation: Satellite Policy" (Robert F. Boruch); (4) "Use of Comparison Groups in the Evaluation of Chapter 1" (Edward C. Bryant); (5) "Design Proposals for Study of Chapter 1 Programs and Their Effects" (James S. Coleman); (6) Design for a National Longitudinal Study of Chapter 1" (William W. Cooley); (7) "Issues in Designing a National Study of Compensatory Education" (Gary Echternacht); (8) "A Discussion of Some Statistical Sampling Issues Related to the Proposed Chapter 1 Longitudinal Study" (Martin R. Frankel); (9) "Issues in Longitudinal Analyses of Chapter 1 Data" (Joy A. Frechtling); (10) "Longitudinal Analysis of Student Achievement Data: Issues for Chapter 1 Evaluation" (David Rogosa); (11) "The National Longitudinal Study of Chapter 1: Design Considerations in Promoting Study Usefulness to Practitioners" (Robert E. Slavin); and (12) "Thoughts on the Chapter I Longitudinal Evaluation Design" (Marshall Smith). (TJH)
