A Suggested Approach for Examining the Effects of a Compensatory Education Program.
Kleinke, David J.
Change Group Analysis is suggested as a technique for examining the correlates of the differential effects of a compensatory education program within the group of enrolled pupils. It is based on using pretest-posttest relative changes for forming criterion groups and then using multiple disciminant analysis to uncover patterns of predictor variables among relevant demographic, cognitive, and affective measures. The technique's potential for avoiding reliance on the artifactual properties of both regression phenomena and gain scores is discussed. It is suggested that the technique would be useful when post hoc matching or covariance analysis might produce misleading or even erroneous conclusions about the overall effectiveness of an intervention program. A confirmatory empirical study is proposed. (Author)
