A Comparative Study of the Relative Achievement of a First Grade Group Using Greater Cleveland Mathematics Program Material and a First Grade Using Traditional Mathematics Material.
Budgy, Joseph Vincent
Reported are the results of a study which compared achievement following use of Greater Cleveland Mathematics Program (GCMP) materials with achievement following traditional materials. Growth in mathematical competency was used to compare treatment groups, groups subdivided by intelligence, and groups determined by sex. Three elementary school classes used the GCMP materials, and three classes used traditional materials. The study was conducted during a school year. Achievement was measured by a form of the "California Arithmetic Test" (CAT), and the "Greater Cleveland Mathematics Tests" (GCMT). Upper intelligence (M = 125) level children achieved significantly higher than the lower intelligence (M = 102) level children regardless of instructional approach or test used. Upper level and lower level children in the GCMP scores were used. No significant differences were found using CAT scores. (Author/RS)
