A Longitudinal Study of Mathematical Achievement in the Primary School Years: Description of Design, Sample, and Factor Analyses of Tests.
Leiderman, Gloria F.
This report presents the data and statistical analyses obtained in a four-year study (1966-1970) of elementary mathematics (ELMA) in grades K-3. Oakland Public Schools and the San Francisco Unified School District were the two systems involved in this study. Treatment variables included socio-economic level of the community (low or middle) and curriculum used for teaching mathematics (SMSG or the state adopted SRA text series). Details of the design of the investigation are reported along with descriptions of the sample, the measures used to assess achievement and the factor analyses performed on the data. The content of the two curricula are outlined in the appendices. Further interpretations of the statistics and data obtained are given in "ELMA Reports, No. 2" (SE 016 833). (JP)
