SUB-PROBLEMS OF THE STUDY WERE (1) TO DETERMINE IF THERE WERE SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES IN LEVELS OF ACHIEVEMENT OF PUPILS IN GRADES 2-6, AND (2) TO DETERMINE IF THERE WERE SIGNIFICANT CORRELATIONS BETWEEN I.Q. AND TEST SCORES. UNIFORM INSTRUCTION WAS ACHIEVED AMONG CLASSES BY UTILIZATION OF INSTRUCTIONAL UNITS WHICH WERE DESIGNED FOR THE STUDY. THE REPORT IS DIVIDED INTO FIVE PARTS--(1) THE PROBLEM, (2) REVIEW OF RELATED LITERATURE, (3) PROCEDURE, (4) RESULTS, AND (5) CONCLUSIONS AND IMPLICATIONS.
