Cutting through the hype : the essential guide to school reform by Jane L David( Book )

7 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cutting Through the Hype: The Essential Guide to School Reform" is a revised, expanded, and updated version of the classic work by Jane L. David and Larry Cuban. It offers balanced analyses of 23 currently popular school reform strategies, from teacher performance pay and putting mayors in charge to turnaround schools and data-driven instruction. Avoiding the heated rhetoric and exaggerated claims that accompany many education reforms, each chapter explains clearly and concisely what each reform intends to do, what happens in reality, and what it takes to make it work. Written by two savvy and experienced educator-researchers, "Cutting Through the Hype" is a book for expert and nonexpert readers alike--policymakers, researchers, school leaders, teachers, and concerned citizens and parents--indeed, for all who are committed to schools and have a stake in their success

Evaluating long-term achievement : an analysis of longitudinal data from compensatory education programs by Sol H Pelavin( Book )

3 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Several sets of data are analyzed, all of which demonstrate that estimates of achievement rates can differ dramatically when different time periods are used for an evaluation of a compensatory education program. Specifically, it is found that including the summer months in an evaluation often considerably reduces estimates of achievement and hence monthly achievement rates. In other words, achievement gains made during the school year are not sustained, even until the next fall. These findings are consistently supported by the data regardless of the standardized achievement test used, the grade level, the subject area, or the program. An evaluation of a one-year program should at least take account of fall-to-fall achievement. For multi-year programs, evaluations should be based on a time period that includes the summer following each year of the program. Including the following summer in an evaluation will allow the conclusion to reflect the extent to which student achievement is sustained and will, therefore, provide more useful information to those concerned with improving programs.

Research on the effectiveness of compensatory education programs : a reanalysis of data : final report by Jane L David( Book )

2 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study attempts to clarify some of the issues involved in defining the effectiveness of compensatory education programs. It discusses the extent to which conclusions about the effectiveness of compensatory education programs are affected by two major components of an evaluation: the period of time on which the evaluation is based and the standard against which the program's effectiveness is judged. It is argued that the philosophy of compensatory education suggests that evaluations should measure program effectiveness over a period of time longer than the school year; in other words, that evaluations should assess the extent to which effects are sustained. Achievement gains for several programs, based on at least two periods of time, are calculated. The primary finding of these analyses is that conclusions about program effectiveness, regardless of what standard is used, are greatly influenced by the period of time over which the program is judged. Specifically, it is shown that the inclusion of the summer months in the evaluation can substantially reduce estimates of achievement and often reverse positive judgements of program effectiveness. The data demonstrate that programs can show evidence of sustained effects. (Author/AM)
