Differences in Personality Characteristics between Groups Having High and Low Mathematical Achievement Gain under Individualized Instruction.
Neufeld, K. Allen
The problem of this study was to determine the relationship of selected characteristics of pupils to achievement gain in elementary school mathematics classes using the Individualized Mathematics Curriculum Project (IMCP) approach. Analysis o f data was based primarily on pre-achievement and post-achievement scores. The hypothesis that there was no difference in the personality characteristics among pupils of different levels of mathematical achievement gain was accepted for the personality variables of self-reliance, sense of personal freedom, feeling of belonging. , freedom from nervous symptoms, family relations, and school relations. The same hypothesis was rejected for the personality variables of sense of personal worth, social standards, freedom from withdrawal tendencies, and community relations. (RP)
