Prospects, the congressionally mandated study of educational growth and opportunity : first year report on language minority and limited English proficient students by Marc Moss( Book )

This report presents descriptive findings from the Language Minority/Limited English Proficiency Student Supplement of "Prospects," a six-year longitudinal evaluation concerning the impact of federal Chapter 1 programs. These programs provide supplemental instruction to low-achieving elementary and secondary school students in low-income schools. Instructional areas supported by Chapter 1 include: reading, mathematics, language arts, English-as-a-Second Language (esl), and bilingual education. Survey and achievement data were collected from a nationally representative sample of three student cohorts beginning in grades 1, 3, and 7. The report presents data from the first two years of data collection (1991 and 1992) for two of the cohorts (grades 1 and 3), including extensive demographic information, student out-of-school behaviors and home support, student academic performance as measured by standardized tests, teacher judgment, and self-report, school attendance and grade retention patterns, and the kind, quality, and extent of educational services provided to lep students. Findings show that lep students who attend public school are particularly disadvantaged. They come from poor families and live in urban communities with high concentrations of poverty. Their parents have especially low levels of educational attainment, are often unemployed, have only limited proficiency in English, and rarely speak English at home. Despite the importance of early educational intervention, the parents of lep students are less likely than other parents to send their children to kindergarten. It is concluded that Chapter 1 policies should be particularly sensitive to the needs of low-achieving lep students, who are more likely to be in low-income schools or schools without adequate services, and who may have difficulty taking standardized tests in English. In addition, the need for more staff training to assist this population is highlighted. (Mse)
National evaluation of the Even Start Family Literacy Program : 1994-1997 final report by Fumiyo Tao( Book )

7 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Even Start Literacy Program addresses the basic educational needs of parents and children of low-income families by providing a unified program of: (1) adult basic or secondary education and literacy programs for parents; (2) assistance for parents to effectively promote their children's educational development; and (3) early childhood education for the children. This final report of the second national evaluation incorporates findings from interim analyses of data collected annually during the last 4 years as well as key findings from the first national evaluation to assess what aspects have changed and what have remained stable during the program's 8 years. Following an executive summary, the report's introduction examines program growth during the past 8 years and principles of the Even Start approach. The remaining chapters cover: (2) design and scope of the second national evaluation; (3) the needs of Even Start families; (4) what resources support the Even Start services; (5) what services Even Start projects provide to participants; (6) the extent to which Even Start families participate in the services provided; (7) educational and developmental outcomes; (8) findings from the two evaluations; and (9) conclusions. Findings include the following: (1) children achieved significant gains in cognitive development; (2) approximately 10 percent of adults attained a ged certificate while participating in Even Start in a given year; (3) service intensity, measured in hours of instructional services offered to participants, has increased steadily during the 4 years of the second evaluation; and (4) excluding families who left the program after having completed their goals, 60 percent of families in 1996-97 were continuing participation at the end of the program year (64 percent of new families; 54 percent of families continuing from previous years). The report's appendices include Even Start legislation, additional data tables, multivariate analyses in chapters 5 and 6, and additional information about the sample study. Contains 133 references.)

Providing Chapter 1 services to limited English-proficient students : final report by E. William Strang( Book )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report describes local procedures for implementing Chapter 1 requirements for selecting limited English-proficient (lep) students for Chapter 1 programs, and describes services for lep students through Chapter 1 and language programs. Case studies of 14 school districts in 6 states were conducted to help the Department of Education formulate appropriate guidance for school districts in providing Chapter 1 services to lep students. This report outlines these case studies, and provides the overall study's background, conclusions, and recommendations. Several districts consider students with low scores on English-language proficiency tests as ineligible for Chapter 1 reading and mathematics services and do not assess them for Chapter 1. English-language proficiency tests are used to select students for Chapter 1 funded English as a second language classes in most districts. Teacher judgments are used more often to select lep students than English-proficient ones for Chapter 1. Coordination between Chapter 1 and language services for lep students is rare at the state level. The degree to which lep students are included in Chapter 1 is related to the design of local Chapter 1 and special language programs and district personnel's perspectives about how lep students' educational experiences should be structured. Lep students can be better served by Chapter 1 programs if schools improve coordination between Chapter 1 and other programs. Statistical data are provided in 14 tables. Appendix a provides the 14 case reports. Appendix b presents 16 questionnaires and checklists administered to Chapter 1 program administrators, schools, teachers, and counselors. (Rlc)
