This Final Report presents the findings from the Field-Focused Study, one of severalcomponents in the National Evaluation of the Comprehensive School ReformDemonstration (CSRD) Program. The U.S. Department of Education (ED) sponsored thestudy under a task order and contract administered by the U.S. Department of Health andHuman Services’ Program Support Center (Task Order #6, Contract No. 282-98-0027), toCOSMOS Corporation. The McKenzie Group, Inc. (TMG), served as a subcontractor toCOSMOS. In this function, TMG conducted and completed a review of all CSRD-relatedstudies supported by the U.S. Department of Education (COSMOS/TMG, 2001). TMGstaff also comprised about one-third of the site visit teams.The Field-Focused Study and the entire task order were directed by Robert K. Yin,Ph.D., of COSMOS. Margaret K. Gwaltney, M.B.A., of COSMOS served as the deputyproject director, and Dawn Kim served as project coordinator. Many other staff membersfrom COSMOS and TMG collaborated in the study, which involved four rounds of sitevisits to 18 CSRD schools and the collection and analysis of student achievement data fromthese schools. Michelle LaPointe, Ph.D., of the Policy and Program Studies Service, U.S.Department of Education, served as the ED project officer for most of the evaluation(Kathryn Doherty, Ph.D., was ED’s first project officer).The report was mainly prepared by Robert Yin and Dawn Kim and is presented in twovolumes.
