A Comparison of Fifth Grade Achievement in an Open-Classroom Between Students Who Were in a Fourth Grade Self-Contained and Students Who Were in a Fourth Grade Open-Class.
Haarer, Evelyn A.; Wurster, Stanley R.
This study investigated whether or not there is a difference in the academic achievement level maintained by a student after a transition has been made from a self-contained classroom to an open classroom. The sample included all the population in a fifth grade open classroom. The experimental group were from a fourth grade self-contained classroom, while the control group were from a fourth grade open classroom. The groups were compared on the basis of two standardized pre- and post-measures. The study concluded that the transition from a self-contained classroom to an open classroom tends to produce no significant difference in academic achievement; the independent variable (the open classroom) tended to produce a considerable mean gain in academic achievement for both groups.
