Mathematics Achievement: Changes in Achievement Scores for Grades Six and Eight After Instruction in Modern Mathematics Programs for Four Years or More, 1969.
Norland, Charles R.
The purpose of the study was to compare the effectiveness of instruction using modern mathematics materials to instruction using traditional materials. Arithmetic achievement comparisons of sixth and eighth grade groups for the 1968-69 school year were made with their counterparts for the 1964-65 school year. Five schools were included. Subtests of the 1959 edition of the Metropolitan Achievement Test were used. Findings were that in general, students who had a traditional program scored higher than those who had a modern program.
