Variability of Pupil Achievement in Mathematics.
Bolvin, John O.
Reported is a study in the Oakleaf Elementary School to test the hypothesis that variability of achievement within a particular grade approximates the number of years the pupils have been in school (e.g., in the third grade, a spread of three years is expected). Data were collected and analyzed regarding range of achievement prior to instruction under IPI, units mastered on placement tests, units mastered after one year of instruction under IPI, range of I.Q. grades, and range of achievement after two years in the program. The data supported the hypothesis stated above. (RP)
