Studies of the Use of Programmed Instruction in the Intact Classroom.
Glaser, Robert; And Others
Psychology in the Schools, v3 n4 p318-333 October 1966
A study was conducted in a school system consisting of one high school, two junior high schools and twelve elementary schools (K-6), to investigate the use of programed instructional materials within the existing classroom structure of an on-going school system. Programed instruction was given in the fields of mathematics and spelling. Aspects of particular concern were: the quality of the programed instructional materials, teacher characteristics, student ability, testing procedures and ceiling effects, and the school system. The results of studies on the first, fourth, seventh, and ninth grades are discussed. The broad conclusions gathered from the study are listed; the most notable of which was felt to be the wide variation in the student rate of learning and the wide variation in student achievement prior to instruction.
