ACHIEVEMENT OF STUDENTS FROM GROUPS INSTRUCTED BY PROGRAMED MATERIALS, CLASSROOM TEACHER, OR BOTH. COMPARATIVE STUDIES OF PRINCIPLES FOR PROGRAMMING MATHEMATICS IN AUTOMATED INSTRUCTION, TECHNICAL REPORT NO. 12.
BROWN, O. ROBERT, JR.
THE EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN IN THIS STUDY OF THE USE OF PROGRAMED MATERIALS TO TEACH HIGH SCHOOL MATHEMATICS DESIGNATED FOUR GROUPS--A CONTROL GROUP TAUGHT CONVENTIONALLY BY TEACHERS TRAINED TO USE PROGRAMED MATERIALS, A "PURE" GROUP USING PROGRAMED MATERIALS ONLY, AND "ANTICIPATING" AND "FOLLOWING" GROUPS THAT USED PROGRAMED MATERIALS BEFORE AND AFTER CONVENTIONAL CLASSROOM TEACHING OF THE SAME MATERIAL. DUE TO INADEQUATE DATA, THE "FOLLOWING" GROUP WAS NOT INCLUDED IN THE ANALYSIS. MATCHED PAIRS OF SUBJECTS, NINTH GRADERS FROM 20 CLASSES IN 16 SCHOOLS, WERE BASED ON APTITUDE AND ABILITY PRE-TESTS, BUT THE CLASSES REMAINED INTACT FOR THE DIFFERENT EXPERIMENTAL GROUPS, AND ONLY THE SCORES OF STUDENTS WHO HAD COMPLETED BOTH PRE-TESTS AND THE ACHIEVEMENT TEST WERE USED FOR ANALYSIS. COMPARISON OF SCORES BETWEEN "PURE" AND CONTROL TREATMENTS INVOLVED 90 PAIRS OF STUDENTS, BETWEEN "ANTICIPATING" AND CONTROL 53 PAIRS, AND BETWEEN "ANTICIPATING" AND "PURE" 52 PAIRS. A STUDENT'S SCORES COULD APPEAR IN MORE THAN ONE COMPARISON. RESULTS SHOWED SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES IN ACHIEVEMENT IN FAVOR OF THE CONTROL COMPARED TO THE "PURE" GROUP, NO DIFFERENCES BETWEEN "ANTICIPATING" AND CONTROL GROUPS, AND DIFFERENCES FAVORING THE "ANTICIPATING" OVER THE "PURE" GROUP.
