GENESYS 1989-90: Selected Program Evaluations.
Wilkinson, David
Selected program evaluations through the GENeric Evaluation SYStem (GENESYS) of the Austin (Texas) Independent School District are reviewed. GENESYS, implemented in 1988-89, consists basically of a database methodology assessing the school system's longitudinal databases and a set of computer programs using the Statistical Analysis System (SAS) to generate output on several variables for designated programs. In its second year, 1989-90, GENESYS included a wide variety of elementary school, secondary school, and kindergarten through grade 12 programs. Information on specified groups of students gathered through GENESYS concerns the following variables: student characteristics; achievement; attendance; discipline; grades/credits; dropouts; and retainees. In this report, GENESYS information is provided for: (1) bilingual and English-as-a-Second-Language programs at all grades; (2) Teach and Reach supplementary reading and mathematics instruction in elementary grades; (3) the AIM High elementary gifted and talented program; (4) the Liberal Arts Academy for public middle/junior high gifted and talented students; (5) the Kealing Magnet School for high achievers in mathematics and science; and (6) the Secondary Honors Program. Eight evaluation summaries are presented in table form. Nine attachments provide operational details for GENESYS. (SLD)
