Specific Subject Self Concept in IPI and Non-IPI Students.
A questionnaire was given to seventh graders in Individually Prescribed Instruction (IPI) and non-IPI classrooms. It contained items concerning the student's self concept of ability in four subjects: mathematics, English, social studies, and science; and it contained items to determine which method of presentation the student preferred. In the group as a whole, as the student's self concept of ability increased, there was a greater tendency for him to like the current course. When the students with IPI backgrounds were considered by themselves, they followed the group trend in English but preferred their IPI mathematics course, regardless of their mathematics self concept. Opinion on the English course was more evenly divided. More students liked the current social studies course than preferred the previous course, but almost the same number liked the two equally. Four data tables supplement the report. (Author/JY)
