Controlled Multivariate Evaluation of Open and Traditional Education at the Junior High School Level. Preliminary Report.
Sewell, Alan F.; Dornseif, Allan W.
A year-long study to evaluate the relative educational outcomes of open and traditional education is being conducted at the O. W. Huth Upper Grade Center, Matteson, Illinois. Midpoint analyses and evaluations of the study are presented. The open plan group includes 140 randomly assigned 7th- and 8th- graders in a single, specially constructed classroom. An equal number of randomly assigned control students pursue the traditional departmental program. The open plan teachers follow an interdisciplinary curriculum. Pretest, midpoint, and posttest measures are presented in four areas: academic achievement, personal growth, social development, and attitudes. (Author)
