The Learning Booth: Preliminary Analysis of Research Activities.
Far West Lab. for Educational Research and Development, Berkeley, CA.
Two reports supplementing the product evaluation of the Learning Booth are presented. The first, "Learing Booth Performance and Subsequent Reading Ability," by N. F. Rayder, examines the relationship between the Learning Booth experience and reading. To do this, readingscores for 65 first-grade Follow Through children were compared with their intelligence test scores and Learning Booth performance data. The second report "A Measure of Intelligence and Subsequent Learning Booth Performance," by Margery Nakamura and Anne Rhodes, explores a child's performance as measured by his Learning Booth achievement in relation to the child's score on a traditional test of intelligence (the WPPSI). Performance was found to be independent of intelligence test scores. (KM)
