A 3-phase evaluation of the summer program was conducted: 1) parental interviews with the families of the children who had participated, 2) administering Form II of the Gates Basic Reading Test, 3) and a comparison of June 1965 grade-point averages with January 1966 grade-point averages. The interviews suggested a generally favorable attitude toward the program. An average gain of 10.8 months in reading level was made by the sample of 20 students who were retested. Generally, school grades among the group had not improved, and there was little indication that the summer program had resulted in any significant changes.
