Krus, Patricia H.; And Others
Field testing of the Time with the Clock Unit of the Money, Measurement and Time Program was conducted with 23 elementary school classes of educable mentally handicapped (EMH) children. The 227 Ss were assigned to the experimental group, the Hawthorne group, or the control group. A criterion referenced test was administered to Ss to evaluate vocabulary and skills developed in the three books of instruction. Testing demonstrated that the unit significantly increased the EMH child's knowledge of time skills and vocabulary. Analyses of community location effects indicated that the unit was highly effective in rural and suburban communities, as well as in urban areas. Teachers who completed evaluations indicated a preference for the unit over other instructional materials. (GW)
