UICSM Research Report Number 4, Some Comparisons of Mathematics Achievement in UICSM and Non-UICSM Classes in Inglewood, California.
Tatsuoka, Maurice M.; Comley, Robert E.
Reported are three studies which have been completed since the inception of a collaboration between the Inglewood Schools and UICSM. These include a comparison by a matched-pairs design, a total group comparison in which covariance analysis provided statistical control, and an item analysis of the tests which obtained difficulty indices for the UICSM experimental group and the comparison group on each item. Forty matched-pairs of UICSM and non-UICSM students were formed on three variables and the two groups were compared on the Cooperative Elementary Algebra and Cooperative Math, Algebra 1, tests. The results showed significantly higher achievement by the UICSM students on both the Cooperative Elementary Algebra and Cooperative Math examinations. (RP)
