DATA GATHERING IN THE FIRST GRADE PROJECT, PROJECT LITERACY.
BIEMILLER, ANDREW
METHODS TO BE USED FOR EVALUATING A NEW FIRST-GRADE CURRICULUM IN READING AND WRITING WERE PRESENTED. THE CURRICULUM WAS DEVELOPED AS PART OF "PROJECT LITERACY," A COMPREHENSIVE RESEARCH PROGRAM IN AREAS OF EDUCATION RELEVANT TO THE ACQUISITION OF LITERACY SKILLS. INTERRELATED TOPICS OF THE CURRICULUM INCLUDED READING (BOOKS, MAGAZINES, AND GENERAL WRITTEN MATERIAL), BASIC SENTENCE CONSTRUCTION, CODING GAMES, AUDIOVISUAL DISCRIMINATION, ALPHABET LEARNING, CORRESPONDENCES, AND HANDWRITING. FORMS AND SCHEDULES WERE DESIGNED FOR USE IN REPORTING THE OBSERVATIONS AND ASSESSMENTS THAT WERE TO BE MADE TO GATHER DATA RELEVANT TO TWO PROBLEMS--(1) THE RELEVANCY AND EFFECTIVENESS OF THE VARIOUS CURRICULUM TOPICS FOR LEARNING TO READ, AND (2) THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE PARTICULAR PROCEDURES AND MATERIALS EMPLOYED FOR TEACHING THE CURRICULUM TOPICS. THE "OBSERVATION" FORMS WERE DESCRIBED UNDER THREE BROAD CATEGORIES--THOSE CONCERNED WITH ATTENTION, THOSE CONCERNED WITH TEACHER-CHILD INTERACTION AND CHILD PERFORMANCE, AND THOSE CONCERNED WITH A GENERAL DESCRIPTION OF THE CLASSROOM ACTIVITIES. THE "ASSESSMENT" FORMS WERE DESIGNED FOR EVALUATION OF CLASSROOM WORKSHEETS, BRIEF CLASSROOM CHECKS ON INDIVIDUALS, TESTING OF GROUPS, AND TESTING OF INDIVIDUALS. (JH)
