A Study of Delayed Achievement in a Short-Term Adult Education Program.
Steffer, Robert Wesley
This study aimed at measuring and evaluating the results of a participation training program after one year had elapsed. Two experimental groups were administered a test of delayed achievement twice; one received a 15-minute treatment review on the principles of participation training in group discussion between the test administrations; the other took the test a second time after a 15-minute interval, receiving no treatment. The third group, an inside control group, was composed of individuals active in church adult education classes; the fourth and fifth groups were inside and outside groups composed of persons not active in adult education groups. Those with training and some randomly-selected, untrained representatives of adult education groups were interviewed. The findings revealed that trained adults achieved significantly higher scores on the delayed achievement test than non-trained adults; test scores of non-trained adults were significantly higher on the delayed achievement test than those of non-trained adults; post-test scores of the group receiving the treatment-review differed significantly from the post-test scores of the group not receiving the treatment-review.
