Guerrero, Frank; And Others
This report presents the results of the evaluation of the 1988-89 Comprehensive Instructional Management Systems-Communication Arts (CIMS-CA) program, which focused on developing a holistic communication arts curriculum and staff development program reflecting the most recent research for students in kindergarten through eighth grade; corresponding assessment instruments; and a computer management system. The report notes that over 50,000 students participated in the program during 1988-89 and that the curriculum and test component integrated four content areas in communication arts--reading, writing, listening, and speaking. The report also notes that participation in the drama component was about 7,000 students. In particular, the report documents the level and quality of program implementation and assesses the program's impact on student achievement in reading and writing. The report is in five chapters: (1) Introduction; (2) Program Components (which discusses project components and implementation); (3) Reactions to, and Perceptions of, the Instructional Component; (4) Student Outcomes; and (5) Conclusions and Recommendations. Twenty-two tables of data are included. Eight appendixes contain tables with analyses of CIMS-CA writing samples. (SR)
