Summary

This report, the third in a series, describes a Head Start longitudinal study of the complex interactions that may take place among child, family, community and program variables. Chapter 1 describes the initial longitudinal sample, based upon information on sex, race, Head Start enrollment, and socioeconomic status. Analyses are given of mothers' and fathers' education and occupation. Chapter 2 gives an account of data collection during the current year of the study, when the children were first enrolled in Head Start classes. The study design calls for two lines of investigation: follow-up of the longitudinal sample, and study of appropriate cross-sectional groups (kindergarten through grade 3). The Personal Record of School Experience (PROSE) and the Classroom Observational Rating Scale (Personality) were used throughout the program year to record the children's relationships with peers, teachers, and classroom materials. The children were tested also on a variety of measures of mental, motor, and personality development. Additional data were collected from parent interviews and classroom observations. Teacher and school administrator questionnaires are in preparation. The cross-sectional study had not been done at the time of this report. (NH)
