HEADSTART OPERATIONAL FIELD ANALYSIS. PROGRESS REPORT III.
ALLERHAND, MELVIN E.
FROM JANUARY 1, 1966 TO APRIL 15, 1966 THE HEADSTART OPERATIONAL FIELD ANALYSIS IN CLEVELAND, OHIO PERFORMED 5 STUDIES. (1) SAMPLES OF HEADSTART (HS) AND NON-HEADSTART (NHS) CHILDREN WERE COMPARED AFTER 6 MONTHS OF KINDERGARTEN. FOUR OBSERVATIONS WERE MADE, USING 2 TEACHER RATINGS AND 2 OBSERVER RATINGS. THERE WERE 191 CHILDREN AT THE TIME OF THE LAST RATING. A REDUCTION IN SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE SAMPLES OCCURRED. (TABLES WITH RESULTS OF THE 4 RATING PERIODS ARE SHOWN.) (2) THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN HS AND NHS TEACHERS AND CHILDREN'S CONCEPT ATTAINMENT WAS STUDIED. THE SAMPLES WERE DIVIDED INTO 25 CLASSROOMS, OF WHICH 12 OF THEM WERE TAUGHT BY A HS TEACHER. THE POSSIBLE VARIABLES INCLUDED STIMULATION EVENTS, TOOLS OF LEARNING, AND TEACHER DIFFERENCES. THERE WERE SOME SIGNIFICANT VARIABLES IN FAVOR OF THE NHS TEACHERS' CLASSROOMS. (3) THE RESULTS OF THE ANALYSES OF THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN SEX AND CONCEPT ATTAINMENT INDICATED THAT BOYS ARE MORE EFFECTIVE IN VISUAL DISCRIMINATION AND THAT GIRLS ARE MORE EFFECTIVE IN HANDLING PERFORMANCE DEMANDS. (4) EXAMINATION OF THE CONCEPT ATTAINMENT OF THE TOTAL SAMPLE THROUGH THE 4 PERIODS OF MEASUREMENT INCLUDES 6 CHARTS REPRESENTING THE STEPS TAKEN BY THE EXTENSIVE SAMPLE. THE STEPS TAKEN INCLUDED COLOR CONCEPT, FORM-SPACE CONCEPT USAGE, GROUPING, ORDERING, TIME SEQUENCE, AND TIME DURATION. (5) FOUR CASE STUDIES, 2 HS AND 2 NHS, WERE MADE TO PRESENT A CONTRAST OF PATTERNS OF DEVELOPMENT. (CO)
