Evaluation of Distar Materials in Three Junior Learning Assistance Classes.
The Distar program, evaluated mainly in terms of pupil achievement and teacher opinion, was generally considered to be successful. Teachers indicated through attitude questionnaires that the lessons were enjoyable, that the students had made reasonable progress and had learned useful skills, and that the material was good and easy to use. The scope of the evaluation was limited by the small size of the groups, differences between classes, and inadequate pre-testing. (DLG)
