State Chapter 1 Participation and Achievement Information--1992-93. Summary Report.
Sinclair, Beth; Gutmann, Babette
This report summarizes the 1992-93 State Performance Reports for the Chapter 1 Local Education Agency (LEA) program and the Chapter 1 State Agency Neglected or Delinquent Program. The Neglected or Delinquent Program serves youth in state-operated correctional facilities and in facilities for neglected youth. Chapter 1 participation has steadily increased: the 1992-93 level of more than 6.4 million students represents an 8 percent increase over participation in 1991-92. Public and nonpublic student participation was concentrated primarily in the lower grades; participation in the neglected or delinquent program was focused to a greater degree in secondary grades. Nearly three-quarters of participating students received instruction in reading, and nearly half received instruction in mathematics. Among the Chapter 1 students who were tested in reading, average post-test scores were higher than pretest scores at every grade level. The same was true for mathematics and for language arts. Nationally, 22 percent of Chapter 1 schools were identified for program improvement in 1992-93 because students in those programs showed no change or a decline in the aggregate achievement scores during the year. Program results are displayed in 51 tables and 14 figures. Five appendixes provide supplemental technical and methodological information. (SLD)
