These seven are: 1) cognitive achievement within the premises of a single discipline approach and differential teacher preparation; 2) differential cognitive achievement by grade level holding teatment by conventional elementary methods and by programmed instruction; 4) differential cognitive achievement varying treatment by deductive and inductive methods of teaching and by relationship to teaching style as perceived by teachers and observers; 5) cognitive achievement for five-year olds using an adaptive oral unit; 6) pupil judgments of interest and suitability, and 7) processes of curriculum diffusion.
