Title VII 1987-88 Final Technical Report.
Austin Independent School District, TX. Office of Research and Evaluation.
This document comprises the final technical report of the evaluation of the 1988-89 secondary bilingual and English-as-a-Second-Language programs for Hispanic limited-English-proficient (LEP) students in the Austin (Texas) Independent School District (AISD); these programs are enhanced with federal funding under the Emergency School Aid Act of 1972 (Chapter VII). The following major findings are reported: (1) Title VII funds, in combination with AISD programs, appear to have a positive effect for most students after three years, based on the performance of those first served in 1985-86; (2) evaluation results for the 1987-88 program alone are more mixed; and (3) evaluation results do not support the overall effectiveness of the Title VII tutoring program because non-tutored students show patterns of growth similar to or greater than those of tutored students after 1, 2, or 3 years. Twelve appendices making up the bulk of the document comprise the following material: (1) detailed discussions of all assessment tools used in the evaluation; (2) an evaluation of a continuing education program leading to certification to teach English as a Second Language; (3) evaluation of a curriculum development project; (4) results of a dropout study; and (5) results of a 3-year study of program participants. Statistical data are included on 19 tables and graphs. An 11-item bibliography is also appended. (FMW)
