National Migrant Evaluation Committee Report.
National Association of State Directors of Migrant Education.
In 1989 the National Association of State Directors of Migrant Education appointed a National Migrant Education Evaluation Committee to plan the development and implementation of a uniform nationwide migrant education needs assessment and evaluation system (MENAES). This report summarizes the committee's activities and recommendations. The committee assumed that the Migrant Student Record Transfer System (MSRTS) will be the major system for verifying, storing, aggregating, and generating MENAES information. MENAES will contain two major components--desired outcomes and achievement. The committee established areas for desired student outcomes, including promotion rate, age/grade congruence, academic performance, graduation rate, secondary credit accrual, English language proficiency, and attendance rate. The committee also proposed desired program outcomes related to health and counseling services, coordination, and parental involvement. Each of these outcomes is described, methods of measurement are suggested, and strategies for use in data analysis are discussed. Achievement-related needs assessment and evaluation reports will be based on norm-referenced test data obtained from individual students and stored in MSRTS. Initially, scores will be analyzed for only five commonly used achievement tests. Standards for data entry, MSRTS responsibilities, and deadlines for system activities are outlined. This report includes names and addresses of committee members, and sections of P.L. 100-297 (the Hawkins-Stafford Act of 1988) relevant to evaluation of Chapter 1 project results and student achievement.
