Evaluation of the Stott Flying Start Learning to Learn Program.
O'Neill, Marie J.
A study involving 65 kindergartners was conducted to evaluate the Flying Start, a programed kit for developing learning strategies in young children considered at risk for learning disabilities. Three tests were administered, at an interval of 8 weeks, before and after the teaching period: a test of coping style, the Marbler Sorter Test of Effectiveness Motivation, and the "choices" score of the Coloured Progressive Matrices. A number of handicaps (including behavior disturbance and health handicap) became apparent in the course of contact with the children. The programed materials allowed the children to bring into play little-used abilities which permit the development of good learning strategies. Moreover, the program had sufficient flexibility to accommodate a reasonable wide range of individual differences. (Author/SBH)
