The final results of an evaluation of the operations of the Manhattan Criminal Court. The first phase of the evaluation covered the five month period beginning on February 1, 1971, when the Master Calendar Project and All-Purpose Parts were initiated; the results are reported in "Evaluation of the Manhattan Criminal Court's Master Calendar Project: Phase 1--February 1-June 30, 1971" (R-1013). The second and final phase covers the first five months of 1972. In this report we compare the effectiveness of two alternative modes of court operation: the Master Calendar System and the All-Purpose Part System. Based in part on the findings of this study, the court's administration concluded that the Master Calendar System was not performing as effectively as the All-Purpose Part System and converted the resources which had been devoted to the former into additional all-purpose parts.
