Summary

This evaluation of an experimental junior high school program in Minneapolis presents data derived from two years of operation. This school was established to explore methods of giving meaningful education to 45 disadvantaged students. It was located in a separate facility and, during the first year, staffed by eight teachers. This experimental group was matched with a control group who remained at the parent school. The report focuses on the experimental evaluation design and on the measuring instruments. It includes information on the first-year evaluation program, staff characteristics, selection of students, and baseline data. For the second year it presents data on measures of achievement and attitudes, teacher and parent opinions, and attendance. The data from the first year showed that the experimental and control groups were well-matched, and although not statistically significant, the findings of the evaluation revealed a "consistent tendency" for experimental students to score better than the controls. Recommendations for future evaluation of this junior high school are included. (nh)
