The i/t/a in Lompoc: A Longitudinal Study.
Wapner, Irwin
Five hypotheses were tested in two longitudinal studies involving i/t/a used with primary-grade children in the Lompoc Unified School District of California. Parents were allowed to request i/t/a training, teachers were given instruction in i/t/a, and children received i/t/a training in first grade. Reading sections of the Stanford Achievement Test, Primary I, were given in both i/t/a and T.O. forms at the end of first grade, and T.O. forms were given at the ends of grades 2 and 3. Results concerning the five hypotheses showed (1) that i/t/a-trained children outperformed T.O.-trained children in grade 1, but not in grades 2 or 3; (2) that boys did not equal girls in achievement with i/t/a training; (3) that boys who were i/t/a-trained outperformed T.O.-trained girls in grade 1, but not in grades 2 or 3; (4) that older i/t/a- or T.O.-trained children outperformed younger children at grades 1, 2, and 3; and (5) that young i/t/a-trained children outperformed older T.O.-trained children in grade 1, but not in grades 2 or 3. Tables of test results are included. (MD)
