A Comparison of Group and Individual Training Procedures on the Raven Learning Potential Measure.
Corman, Louise; Budoff, Milton
This study compared the effectiveness of a training procedure involving groups of elementary school students to an individualized training procedure, both of which utilized the Raven Learning Potential (LP) measure to assess improved performance. The development of a group training procedure using the Raven Progressive Matrices aimed at an increase in cost effectiveness. The study demonstrated the appropriateness of a group training procedure with the Raven LP measure where results of group training with intellectually normal children resembled those achieved through individual training. The significant interaction between training group and pretest score suggests that the individual training procedure may be more effective with lower IQ children since they are more likely than normal children to have low pretest scores.
