Preliminary Evaluation Report on the Los Angeles City Schools, SB 28 Demonstration Program in Mathematics.
Gordon, C. Wayne
The purpose of this preliminary report is to describe and evaluate the Los Angeles Model Mathematics Project (LAMMP). The objectives of this project include the improvement of mathematical skills and understanding of mathematical concepts, the improvement of students' self-image, the development of instructional materials and the assessment of commercially developed instructional materials. The report describes the manner by which participants in the project were chosen and the instructional programs which were employed. An evaluation of measurement instruments used, a summary and interpretation of evaluation data, and recommendations for improving the project are also included. Only a preliminary analysis of data is contained in this report and no attempt is made to make statistical inferences. The report concludes that in many cases subjects were not randomly assigned to experimental and comparison groups and thus no valid inferences about the effects of instructional variables based on differences between experimental and comparison groups can be made.
