TEACHER VERBAL CUES AND PUPIL PERFORMANCE ON A GROUP READING TEST.
LAMB, GEORGE S.
A STUDY DESIGNED TO DETERMINE THE EFFECT ON CLASS PERFORMANCE OF VERBAL CUES ADMINISTERED AS PUPILS WORKED ON A GROUP READING TEST WAS CONDUCTED. THE SUBJECTS WERE PUPILS IN 18 SECOND-GRADE CLASSES AND 18 THIRD-GRADE CLASSES TO WHICH 36 FEMALE STUDENT TEACHERS WERE ASSIGNED. THE TASKS WERE TWO SUBTESTS OF THE "NEW DEVELOPMENTAL READING TESTS." THE CLASSES WERE ASSIGNED RANDOMLY TO ONE OF THREE TREATMENTS--CUES FOR SPEED, CUES FOR ACCURACY, AND NO VERBAL CUES. THE TEACHERS WERE TRAINED TO ADMINISTER THE TEST AND TO GIVE THE SPEED AND ACCURACY CUES. TEST SCORES WERE TREATED BY ANALYSIS OF VARIANCE AND SCHEFFE CONFIDENCE INTERVALS AT THE .01 AND .05 LEVELS OF SIGNIFICANCE RESPECTIVELY. INDEPENDENT SOURCES OF VARIATION WERE TREATMENTS, GRADE LEVELS, SEX, AND READING ACHIEVEMENT LEVELS. RESULTS INDICATED THAT GIRLS WERE MORE RESPONSIVE TO TEACHERS' CUES THAN BOYS. THE SPEED-TREATMENT GROUP DID ATTEMPT MORE ITEMS THAN THE OTHER GROUPS, AND THE ACCURACY-TREATMENT GROUPS DID ACHIEVE A HIGHER RATIO OF ITEMS CORRECT. HOWEVER, DIFFERENCES WERE NOT SIGNIFICANT. TABLES, REFERENCES, AND THE CUES USED ARE PROVIDED. (RH)
