Prekindergarten Program Product Evaluation Reports, 1991-92, 1992-93, 1993-94, 1994-95.
Claus, Richard N.; Quimper, Barry E.
This document consists of four consecutive annual program evaluation reports covering the years 1991-92, 1992-93, 1993-94, 1994-95, respectively. These reports detail the results of the annual product evaluation of the federally funded Chapter 1 prekindergarten program of the Saginaw, Michigan School District. The purpose of the prekindergarten program is to provide inner-city 4-year-olds with an environment that will enable them to develop the skills needed for success in school. The paper served the following number of children in each of the year periods: 428, 433, 502, 495. The major question addressed set out to accomplish? To answer this question, evaluators used: (1) the Prekindergarten Saginaw Objective Referenced Test to assess cognitive and psychomotor objectives; and (2) a Parents as Partners Sheet to assess the amount and type of parent participation. Findings indicate that in each of the four year primers evaluated, the program met all nine objectives in the cognitive skills area and three of four objectives in the psychomotor skills area. All three objectives for parent participation were met. The reports also present recommendations for program improvement based on the evaluation results. Appendixes, which make up the bulk of the reports, include a list of the 16 program objectives, a list of program participants, and a copy of the Prekindergarten Saginaw Objective Referenced Test.
