Neglected or Delinquent Program, 1991-1992. Elementary and Secondary Education Act--Chapter 1. Final Evaluation Report.
The Neglected or Delinquent (N or D) Program of the Columbus (Ohio) public schools is designed to provide classroom and tutorial services in the area of language development for pupils served in Chapter 1 eligible facilities for the neglected or delinquent. In the 1991-92 school year, there was one full-time N or D teacher and 16 part-time tutors providing services in 12 institutions. Standardized test information for grades 2 through 12 was collected from September 1991 through April 1992. The data included results of norm-referenced tests, the Metropolitan Achievement Test, the Comprehensive Tests of Basic Skills, and the California Achievement Tests. The program served a total of 371 students, most of whom were in grades 6 through 12. Of these, 144 were non-minority, 224 were Black, and 3 were Hispanic. There were 11 females and 260 males. No assessment could be made of the desired outcome of a defined achievement gain because of high pupil mobility. Program continuation is recommended because it provides needed services in exceptional circumstances. An alternative evaluation design is recommended, since too few pupils are enrolled long enough to fulfill the current plan. Four tables present study findings. An appendix contains worksheets, a data sheet, and evaluation forms. (SLD)
