Temporal Retention Study on IPI Mathematics.
Weinberger, Jo Ann
In the past there has been some question about a pupil's retention of knowledge after the summer recess. In the Individually Prescribed Instruction (IPI) system, once a pupil begins working through the objectives, it should be unnecessary to have him take placement tests each Fall. The present study extracted data from the pupils' placement profiles for the Spring and Fall of 1968 in four schools for 1,231 pupils representing grades 1-5. These data were analyzed to determine if the IPI policy regarding a Fall placement test was correct. The results of the study show that it is unnecessary to have the placement test again in the Fall. Data tables supplement the report. (JY)
