Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden: Responses: 2,288. Burden Hours: 2,288. Abstract: The original OMB package requested clearance for the baseline intake and administrative records instruments to be used in the Evaluation of the Impact of Literacy Interventions in Freshman Academies. This package requests clearance for additional followup instruments to collect information from teachers and high school ninthgrade students at the end of the school year. The teacher instruments gather data about implementation issues, and the student instrument focuses on student outcomes related to reading attitudes and behaviors. The study has also been expanded to include an additional cohort of students, and thus will examine the impacts of these literacy interventions on student outcomes for two cohorts of students instead of one.
