Summary

The Omaha Westside Public Schools Director of Research made a thorough investigation of student participation in the commercially available mathematics programs, the Hoffman Mathematics System and Systems 80, and parental attitudes about student participation. This report answers questions dealing with the justification of Title I funds resulting in achievement for participating students, which of the two programs is most effective in this particular district and whether or not summer school attendance impacts achievement. In addition, cost of the program, teacher attitudes towards the program and ease of implementation are addressed. Short and long-term achievement effects are considered. The results of the study are discussed in three sections: student achievement, student attitude toward the instructional program, and a survey of Title I and Non-Title I parents. Results of the evaluation for the district's Title I Mathematics program for 1978-79 are also integrated whenever possible, making it possible to trace the achievement of some Title I students over all four testing periods during the last two years.
