A Comparison of Selected Modes of Individualized Instruction in Mathematics for Effectiveness and Efficiency.
Chatterley, Louis Joseph
The effectiveness and efficiency of four self-instructional modes of individualized instruction were compared. The effectiveness criterion was based on a posttest and a retention test; the efficiency criterion was based on the quotient of the effectiveness criterion and the total time in minutes required to complete the program. A unit on addition and subtraction with integers was presented to 96 seventh graders in four modes: (1) a self-instructional mode using Individually Prescribed Instruction (IPI) material, (2) a correct-answer feedback scheme with the IPI material, (3) use of multimedia and an introductory unit to supplement the IPI material, and (4) multimedia material as well as the correct-answer feedback scheme. Findings showed that the fourth mode was the most effective and was as efficient as the other modes. There were significant differences for medium and low groups established on mathematics and reading scores on both criteria; these students especially benefited by the fourth mode of instruction.
