Hawaii State Dept. of Education, Honolulu. Office of the Superintendent.
This report offers an evaluation of the Hawaii Chapter 1 Program for school years 1985-86 and 1986-87. The reading and mathematics programs served 14,158 students in 1985-86 and 14,280 in 1986-87. Data regarding reading indicated that mean normal curve equivalent (NCE) gains greater than zero were found in all districts and grade levels for both school years. Elementary school students (grades 1-6) tended to have greater reading achievement gains than secondary school students (grades 7-12). Statewide mean NCE reading achievement gain scores for 1985-86 and 1986-87 were 8.6 and 8.4, respectively. A total of 74 percent of students had NCE gain scores greater than zero in the 1985-86 school year, and 73 percent had such gains in the 1986-87 year. A greater proportion of elementary school students than of secondary school students made positive NCE gains for the 2-year period. Regarding statewide mathematics, the mean NCE gains were 8.2 in 1985-86 and 10.6 in 1986-87. Elementary students tended to have greater achievement gains than secondary students. For the 1985-86 and 1986-87 school years, 71 percent and 79 percent of Chapter 1 mathematics students had NCE gains greater than zero. Except for Windward school district, a greater proportion of elementary school (grades 2-6) students than of secondary school students made positive NCE gains for the 2-year period. It is concluded that Hawaii's Chapter 1 Program has had a positive impact on students. (RH)
