SELF-DIRECTION IN PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION--EFFECTS ON LEARNING IN LOW-ABILITY STUDENTS.
BIVENS, LYLE W.; AND OTHERS
TWO GRADE 9 MATH CLASSES (41 STUDENTS) OF LOW ABILITY WERE EACH EXPOSED TO LINEAR AND SELF-DIRECTED (COMPLETE FREEDOM AS TO EXTENT, SEQUENCE, AND METHOD OF STUDY) PROGRAMS ON SET THEORY AND PERMUTATIONS. ANALYSIS OF VARIANCE FOR ACHIEVEMENT TEST SCORES AND MEAN RETENTION SCORES SHOWED NO SIGNIFICANT EFFECT OF PROGRAM TYPE OF STUDY TIME. QUESTIONNAIRE DATA SHOWED, IN PART, A SIGNIFICANT PREFERENCE FOR THE LINEAR PROGRAM. THE AUTHORS POINT OUT THAT SELF-DIRECTION DID NOT AFFECT PERFORMANCE ADVERSELY. (LH)
