The Effects of Multibase Grouping and Early or Late Introduction of Base Representations on the Mastery Learning of Base and Place Value Numeration in Grade One.
Rathmell, Edward Cary
The purpose of the study was to determine the effects of type of grouping (multibase (M) or base ten (T) ) and the time that base representations are introduced (initially (EB) or after counting, reading and writing numerals (LB) ) on achievement in numeration in grade one. Four intact classes of 110 students participated, and a 2 x 2 factorial design was used. Achievement measures were developed by the investigator. Results showed no significant differences between M and T; low-ability pupils achieved better in T throughout. After the posttest, LB had consistently higher means and adjusted means than EB, and had significantly more students with mastery on the retention test. (Author/DT)
