MEASURES OF LEARNING RATES FOR ELEMENTARY SCHOOL STUDENTS IN MATHEMATICS AND READING UNDER A PROGRAM OF INDIVIDUALLY PRESCRIBED INSTRUCTION.
YEAGER, JOHN L.
THE CONSISTENCY OF THREE MEASURES OF LEARNING RATE IN MATHEMATICS AND READING WAS STUDIED OVER DIFFERENT UNITS OF STUDY. STUDENTS OF GRADES ONE THROUGH SIX (N=152) MATHEMATICS AND READING, INDIVIDUALLY PRESCRIBED INSTRUCTION. EACH WAS ASSIGNED TO A SPECIFIC LEVEL IN A CONTENT AREA BASED ON SUBJECT MASTERY. THE RATE MEASURES INCLUDED THE TOTAL NUMBER OF MATHEMATICS AND READING UNITS MASTERED BY A STUDENT, THE NUMBER OF DAYS A STUDENT REQUIRED TO MASTER A GIVEN UNIT, AND AN INDEX OF RATE OF LEARNING. THE RESULTS INDICATED THAT THE RATE OF STUDENT LEARNING, AS MEASURED, WAS SPECIFIC TO A GIVEN TASK, AND NOT A GENERAL FACTOR OPERATING UNIFORMLY IN ALL LEARNING SITUATIONS. NONCONSISTENT STUDENT-LEARNING RATE WAS FOUND BETWEEN THE CURRICULUM AREAS OF MATHEMATICS AND READING FOR THOSE RATE MEASURES PERTAINING TO SPECIFIC UNITS. FINALLY, THE LEVEL OF READING ACHIEVEMENT WAS NOT RELATED TO THE RATE OF LEARNING MEASURES FOR SPECIFIC UNITS. (RS)
