The Project Method in Distributive Education: Student Achievement in Selected Content Areas.
Thrash, Jimmie Ford
To justify the use of a particular teaching method it should be followed up with a measurement of student achievement. Thus, the primary objective of this study was to determine whether the project method of instruction is accomplishing its task of training young men and women to enter the world of work without the benefit of first hand experience in an on-the-job situation. An exhaustive and a comprehensive answer to the question implied by the objective was not available, so three subject content areas were used in testing students who were previously and those who were not previously enrolled in the project method of instruction. Differences in their rate of achievement were determined and analyzed using the single and multiple classification of variance. One major conclusion reached from the study is that there is no significant difference in the rate of achievement on the three content tests between the two groups of students tested. This Ed.D. dissertation was submitted to Oklahoma State University. (Author/JS)
