A Comparative Study of Student Achievement and Other Selected Student Characteristics in a Program of Individualized Instruction in Mathematics and in a Program of Traditional Instruction in Mathematics in Grades 1 - 6.
Meade, William F.; Griffin, Lawrence M.
This final report concludes a one-year study of the individually prescribed instruction (IPI) mathematics program as an instructional approach in grades 1-6. A comparison was made in one school district between traditional classes and those under the IPI program. Classes were matched by mean I.Q., previous mathematics achievement, and socio-economic status. The results showed that no significant difference occurred between the control and experimental groups in achievement, but a positive difference was found in teachers' and pupils' attitudes. (RS)
