Proficiency in Arithmetic Basic Fact Computation of Learning Disabled and Nondisabled Children. Technical Report # 9.
Fleischner, Jeannette E.; And Others
The study involving 183 learning disabled and 852 nondisabled children (grades 3 through 6), investigated students' performance on arithmetic basic fact problems in addition, subtraction, and multiplication. Three separate group administered tests were devised, covering 98 basic addition, 98 subtraction, and 98 multiplication facts. Children were permitted 3 minutes for each test. Performance scores derived were number of problems attempted within 3 minutes, total number of problems correct, and percent correct of number attempted. Learning disabled Ss performed less well than their nondisabled peers on each operation and on all performance measures. Although improved performance was associated with increasing age, the performance of the learning disabled did not equal that of the nondisabled at any age. (Author/SB)
