The Evaluation of Programed Spelling. Final Report to the Commissioner of Education for the State of New York.
Guggenheim, Fred; And Others
In preparation for evaluation of programed spelling instruction, a grade 5 spelling program was designed, teachers were given special training, and an educational motivation scale was developed. Of the three subject groups used to carry out the investigation--(1) control, taught by the conventional method; (2) experimental, taught by programed instruction materials; (3) experimental, taught by teachers using a methodology based on principles and techniques derived from programed instruction (programed based teaching)--the programed-based instruction group and the conventional method group did significantly better than the group using the programed text. It appeared that programed instruction in spelling could be used effectively in conjunction with teacher directed instruction. (Appended are the spelling program, lesson plans, spelling achievement tests, the motivation scale, and a record of the pilot study.)
