A National Summary of Achievement Information as Reported by State Migrant Education Programs for Fiscal Years 1982 and 1983.
Jenkins, Jerry A.
This volume presents a description of migrant education achievement information as reported in the state programs' annual reports to the United States Department of Education for fiscal years 1982, in which 48 states reported, and 1983, in which 49 states reported. The report presents information regarding the subjects taught, grade levels served, school terms in which the programs were offered (i.e. regular and summer terms), evaluation design employed, type of tests used, testing cycle or schedule followed for acquiring achievement data, number of children upon whom the data were based, data analysis procedures and the evaluation results. Not all the desired information was found in every report, due to the fact that the states develop their own locally-relevant criteria for collecting and reporting information. The report should not be viewed as a national data collection or as an attempt to provide a statistically valid national profile of migrant programs. Rather, the achievement information presented in the state-by-state summary reflects great variations across states in both actual programs and evaluation procedures. The document contains 25 tables presenting statistical data. (TES)
