PROGRAMED MATERIALS IN MATHEMATICS FOR SUPERIOR STUDENTS IN RURAL SCHOOLS.
MOORE, J. WILLIAM; SMITH, WENDELL I.
A STUDY WAS CONDUCTED ON THE ACHIEVEMENTS OF SUPERIOR STUDENTS USING PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION AND SEMINARS TO STUDY MODERN MATHEMATICS. TWO EXPERIMENTS WERE CONDUCTED TO TEST THE HYPOTHESES THAT (1) SUPERIOR STUDENTS USING PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION WILL ACHIEVE HIGHER SCORES THAN THOSE USING CONVENTIONAL MATERIALS, (2) STUDENTS USING PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION BY MACHINE WILL NOT DIFFER FROM THOSE USING A PROGRAMED TEXTBOOK, AND (3) STUDENTS WILL NOT SHOW A PREFERENCE BETWEEN THE TWO MODES OF PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION. FOUR GROUPS WERE ESTABLISHED FOR THE BASIC EXPERIMENT. THE SAMPLE CONSISTED OF 100 HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS WHO WERE RANDOMLY ASSIGNED TO THE MACHINE, PROGRAMED TEXTBOOK, CONVENTIONAL TEXTBOOK, OR CONTROL GROUPS. THE RESULTS INDICATED THAT SELF-INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS IN MATHEMATICS CAN BE USED PROFITABLY BY SUPERIOR STUDENTS WITH OR WITHOUT A TEACHER. (RS)
