The Bilingual Academic Services and Integrated Career Systems (Project BASICS). 1990-91 Final Evaluation Profile. OREA Report.
New York City Board of Education, Brooklyn, NY. Office of Research, Evaluation, and Assessment.
This document contains the final evaluation profile for the Bilingual Academic Services and Integrated Career Systems (Project BASICS). A brief extract presents an overview of salient points of the project: funding cycle; enrollment figures; background of students served; admission criteria; and programming features, strengths, and limitations, including the outcome of all objectives. The extract is followed by the body of the report, which includes information on staffing, program implementation, and outcome and implementation objectives. Instructional objectives are presented first, followed by noninstructional objectives. The report then addresses those aspects of programming mandated by Title VII regulations that do not have specifically stated objectives. Included is information on attendance and dropout rates, grade retention, mainstreaming, referrals out of the program to meet special needs of the students, and withdrawals. It is noted that Project BASICS was fully implemented and that students received guidance for furthering their education and for career enhancement; that the project met its objectives for English as a second language, staff development, curriculum development, and parental involvement; that it met its objectives for content area subjects in mathematics and social studies but not science; that it failed to achieve its objectives for attendance and dropout prevention; and that it met two career development objectives but did not provide the data necessary to evaluate a third objective. A case history concludes the report. Data for the profile are described in the appendix. (NB)
