An Experimental Investigation of Individualized Instruction in the Teaching of Quantitative Physical Science.
Williams, William Watts
Reported was an investigation of the effectiveness of individualized versus group instruction in ninth grade science. Six classes were matched on the basis of Lorge-Thorndike Nonverbal Intelligence Test scores and placed into three groups: control, experimental, and reference (taking a different science course). The conclusion was: individualized instruction was more effective than group instruction for achievement, retention, amount of activities completed, and positive student attitudes. (Author/DS)
