EVALUATION OF ELEMENTARY SCHOOL ENRICHMENT CENTER PROGRAM (EXPERIMENTAL PROGRAM 94).
HOFFMAN, RUTH B.
RESEARCH WAS CONDUCTED TO FIND THE VALUE OF AN ENRICHED ELEMENTARY SCHOOL PROGRAM FOR A HOMOGENEOUS GROUPING OF MENTALLY SUPERIOR STUDENTS. STUDIES WERE CARRIED OUT WITH AN EXPERIMENTAL AND A CONTROL GROUP TO FIND DEVELOPMENT IN LEADERSHIP CAPACITY, INTERESTS, ABILITY TO DRAW CONCLUSIONS, ARTISTIC ABILITY, AND SOCIAL ADJUSTMENT. OBJECTIVE MEASUREMENTS, STATISTICAL ANALYSIS, RANKING PROCEDURE, AND QUALITATIVE OBSERVATIONS WERE USED TO ANALYZE DATA. THE MAJOR CONCLUSION IS THAT THE BENEFICIAL INFLUENCE OF THE PROGRAM IS NOT IDENTICAL FOR EACH CHILD. THE GENERALLY NEGATIVE FINDINGS COULD BE DUE TO THE MEASURING INSTRUMENTS EMPLOYED. SOME BENEFIT FROM THE PROGRAM WAS REVEALED AFTER 1 YEAR. THESE BENEFITS DID NOT SHOW UP, HOWEVER IN THE 2D AND 3D YEAR. THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE EXPERIMENTAL AND CONTROL GROUPS, REVEALED BY THE INSTRUMENTS, APPEARED VERY SLIGHT. THERE IS A NEED FOR BETTER RESEARCH INSTRUMENTS AND SUBGROUPING OF THE MENTALLY SUPERIOR GROUP INTO CREATIVE AND NONCREATIVE, AND SUPERIOR AND BRIGHT.
