A Longitudinal Study of Mathematical Achievement in the Primary School Years: Curriculum and Socio-Economic Comparisons and Predictions from Previous Achievement.
This report presents the results derived from data in a four-year study (1966-1970) of elementary mathematics (ELMA) in grades K-3. Chapter 1 is a brief summary of the study; a detailed description is given in "ELMA Reports, No. 1" (SE 016 832). The relationship between mathematics performance at the end of each year of the study and previous achievement was one aspect of the investigation. A year-by-year analysis and interpretation of the data pertaining to this relationship are reported. The other area covered was the relative effect of two curricula and two socio-economic levels (low and middle) on mathematics performance. These comparisons are also present for each grade level. The two curricula, SRA text series and the SMSG-prepared materials, are outlined briefly to indicate similarities and differences. A detailed comparison is given in "ELMA Reports, No. 1." Statistical data are included in the appendix. (JP)
