The Ability of Selected Sixth Grade Pupils to Function at a Variety of Cognitive Levels on Selected Mathematical Tasks.
Burron, Douglas Stuart
The purpose was to examine the assumption that all children of various abilities can profit from instruction demanding activity on a variety of cognitive levels. Two groups of about 40 sixth graders each were chosen by their scores on the "Analysis of Learning Potential." Students were classified as having high or low success potential. A series of five process exercises (featuring topics not previously taught and using a quasi-programmed format with an independent directed discovery approach) were taught to each group. Findings showed that pupils in the high group attained high proportions of success and that at least one-half of the low group pupils also attained a respectable measure of success at every cognitive level. A marked difference in behavior related to self-confidence of low and high group students was shown. Pupils in both groups showed preference for manipulatory activities. (Author/DT)
