Many different studies of Peace Corps effectiveness were conducted, using field experiment and survey (mail questionnaire, panel, interview) technIQues to measure attitudes and behaviors of Peace Corps volunteers, and colombian teachers, pupils, and professional and technical personnel. Statistical analysis of--15,000 tests given to pupils, 1550 given to teachers, six surveys of 5200 teachers, and 1000 hours of interviews with volunteers and teachers yeilded feedback on the project's success and its many technical problems plus suggestions for improvement in both teaching technIQues and measurement devices. Topics of the 10 individual project reports summarized are--the project's organization, the first semester--pupil achievement, teacher attitudes and the volunteer, improving the effectiveness of the volunteer and the teacher, making educational TV work in a developing country's schools, a volunteer's daily job, in-service teacher training by television, improving the effectiveness of volunteer efforts to change teacher behavior, the televised curriculum and the teacher, the volunteer, feedback to the Peace Corps.
