Summative Evaluation of Listen Look Learn Cycles R-40, 1967-68.
Brickner, Ann; And Others
Evaluation of Cycles R-40 of the Listen Look Learn Multi-Media Communication Skills System (LLL) is reported. Data were gathered from 26 schools through item analysis of pupil workbook responses, summation of teacher evaluations, and standardized tests. Subjects were first graders in 28 LLL classes and in 28 control classes, using basal reading programs. Teacher and class reactions to LLL, as reported through teacher evaluations, were favorable to the program. Analysis of objective data showed significantly higher scores for those children in the treatment groups, regardless of ability level, on all but two of the subtests considered. It was found that average-ability children using the LLL system scored at almost the same level as high-ability children in control classes. Also, the difference between LLL groups and control groups was most pronounced for the average-ability group. Graphs and data tables are included. (MD)
