Summative Evaluation of the Measurement of Length Unit of the Money, Measurement and Time Program. Research Report No. 71.
Krus, Patricia H.; And Others
Field testing of the Length Unit of the Money, Measurement and Time Program was conducted with 23 elementary school classes of educable mentally handicapped (EMH) children. The 218 Ss were assigned to the experimental group, the Hawthorne group, or the control group. Two criterion referenced tests were administered to evaluate Ss' measuring skills and vocabulary. Testing demonstrated that the Length Unit increased the EMH child's knowledge of length skills and vocabulary. However, the increase was not significantly greater than that obtained by controls. Analyses of community location effects indicated that the unit was equally effective in the urban and suburban communities, and apparently of even greater effectiveness in the rural areas. Teachers expressed a preference for the unit over other instructional materials. (GW)
