State Bilingual and ECIA Chapter 1 Migrant Product Evaluation Report. 1988-89.
Saginaw Public Schools, MI. Dept. of Evaluation Services.
This document presents product evaluations of the 1988-89 Saginaw (Michigan) State Bilingual Program and the Migrant Program, funded under Chapter 1 of the Education Consolidation and Improvement Act. The evaluations revealed a decline in reading performance, and an increase in mathematics performance over the previous year for participants in the State Bilingual Program. Participants in the Migrant Program demonstrated an increase in performance in both reading and mathematics. The State Bilingual Program served 900 predominately Hispanic students; the Migrant Program served 449 students. Students in grades 2-12 were pre- and post-tested using the California Achievement Test (CAT) Form E on a spring to spring basis. The locally adopted performance standard was that grade level post-test mean percentile scores would show improvement over pre-test scores. Recommendations are suggested based on the results of this product evaluation and a separately conducted process evaluation. Statistical data are included on 13 tables. The appendices are listed under the following headings: (1) 1988-89 Count of State Bilingual and Migrant Program Participants; (2) Identification and Eligibility Procedures for State Bilingual and Migrant Students and Funding Summary Flow Chart; and (3) Mean Percentile Gain/Loss in Reading and Mathematics by Building and Grade for 1-12 State Bilingual and Migrant Based on Pre- to Post-Testing on CAT, 1988-89 (Spring to Spring).
