Final Evaluation Report, Project Video-Tape Packages Mathematics.
Ludeman, Clinton; And Others
An evaluation of an individualized program for ninth-grade algebra and basic mathematics students is presented. Objectives of this program were to increase achievement and to create a positive attitude toward mathematics. Materials written for the program were used with audiovisual lessons recorded on tape cassettes. When the achievement gains of the 31 experimental students were compared to students in the regular classes, no significant differences were found. It was noted that not all of the experimental students had completed 36 weeks worth of instruction at the time achievement gain was assessed while control-group subjects had. The experimental group did display a more positive attitude toward mathematics after one year's exposure to the program. Included in this report are details of the program management, equipment, facilities, budget statements, a needs assessment report upon which the program is based, summaries of achievement gains, and the analysis of the attitudinal measure. The needs questionnaire and the attitude questionnaire used are given in full. This work was prepared under an ESEA Title III contract. (JP)
