Controlled Multivariate Evaluation of Open and Traditional Education at the Junior High School Level: The First-Year Report.
Sewell, Alan F.; Dornseif, Allan W.
Measures of attitude, academic achievement, and social and personality variables were employed in a year-long evaluation of progress and outcomes of open education and traditional education groups. Data were analyzed by multivariate analysis of variance and discriminant function techniques, using means of teacher ratings as the "success" criterion. The two groups were found to differ in a number of ways. Results are given, and the relative advantages and disadvantages of this evaluative methodology, based on random assignment of students, are discussed. (Author)
