Effects of Repeated Performance Objectives Upon Student Achievement and Attitude.
Ferre, Alvin Victor
The purpose of this study was to assess the effectiveness of repeating performance objectives upon student academic learning and attitude. A program was studied by three groups of subjects: (1) 20 students who were given no performance objectives; (2) 39 students who were given the performance objectives once at the beginning of each unit; and (3) 44 students who were given the performance objectives daily. The Map Reading, Tables and Graphs subtest of the Iowa Test of Basic Skills, and Ball's Mathematics Attitude Scale, were given as pretests, posttests and retention tests. Raw scores were converted into percentage gain scores for the purpose of analysis. Significant differences were found between group mean scores on learning and retention, with (3) gaining more than (2) which gained more than (1). There were no significant differences on the attitude measure, and attitude was unrelated to achievement. There was, however, a significant interaction between treatments, attitude, and achievement.
