Data, Program Evaluation and Reporting (DPER)
Hierarchical Linear Modeling was used to determine if the growth trajectories of student reading and math performance varied for students that were served in Title I schoolwide schools or targeted assistance schools, compared to students with similar backgrounds who did not receive any Title I services. A follow up study was done to test the relationship between schools’ Per Pupil Allocation and the Median Growth Percentiles of the schools.
Quantitative data was used to identify Title I schools that had attained high growth with their lowest performing students (Catch-Up Students on the Colorado Growth Model). A comprehensive school study was conducted of each school to determine areas of strength and strategies that can be shared with other Title I schools. Reports are available on each school on our HGS Study webpage.

Title I funds were awarded on a competitive basis to support summer school programs in the summer of 2010. Because this was a pilot study, one of the grant requirements was submission of program implementation data. Data submitted by grantees and the state assessment data are being used to conduct a state wide evaluation of the effectiveness of summer school programs in increasing student performance from the year before to the year after the summer school program implementation.

The goal of the School Improvement Grant (SIG) was to target low performing Title I schools and provide an intensive two year intervention aimed at improving students’ academic achievement. The OMNI Institute was contracted to conduct an evaluation of the SIGs implemented across several years (2004-2005 through 2007-2008).

Supplemental Educational Services (SES) is a program wherein district Title I funds are set aside to provide tutoring to students at no expense to the student. The tutoring is offered outside of the school day. CDE is required to evaluate the effectiveness of the SES program implemented in Colorado, including evaluating the effectiveness of each provider. In prior years, CDE has contracted with an outside evaluation firm to conduct the evaluation.
- Each year’s evaluation report, as well as a table that summarizes the longitudinal findings can be viewed by clicking below
- In May 2012, CDE conducted a webinar to summarize the 2010-2011 SES Evaluation findings

This program provides funding to support the education of youth in state-operated institutions and provides assistance to school districts that work with local facilities that serve adjudicated youth. Colorado receives formula funds based on the number of students in state institutions and local facilities. Facility report cards and statewide reports are generated annually to present the academic and vocational performance of students within the facilities.

Title II, Part A is intended to increase student academic achievement by improving teacher and principal quality. This includes increasing the number of Highly Qualified teachers in classrooms, improving the skills of principals and assistant principals in schools, and increasing the effectiveness of teachers and principals. A study was conducted to determine how districts were allocating their IIA funds and the changes in IIA district allocations across years (2003-2004 compared to 2008-2009).

Title II-B, Mathematics and Science Partnerships (MSP), is intended to increase the academic achievement of students in math and/or science by enhancing the content knowledge and teaching skills of classroom teachers. This grant provides districts and schools with the opportunity to partner with faculty from the science, technology, engineering, and/or mathematics (STEM) departments in institutions of higher education. CDE evaluates the statewide impact of the partnerships in the year subsequent to funding (evaluation reports are one year lagged to due to the data collection periods and reliance on state assessments which are not ready for analyses until the year after implementation).

The primary goal of this program is to improve student achievement through the use of technology in elementary and secondary schools. CDE evaluated the impact of the program in the final year of funding.
Title III is designed to improve the education of Limited English Proficient (LEP) students by helping them learn English and meet challenging state academic content and student academic achievement standards.
