Measurement of Weight Unit: A Formative Evaluation. Research Report No. 77.
Thurlow, Martha L.; And Others
The pilot version of the Measurement of Weight Unit of the Money, Measurement and Time Program was tested with 23 higher functioning educable mentally handicapped (EMH) children (5- to 8-year-old) from regular preprimary classes and with 17 lower functioning EMH children 8- to 10-years-old) from special classes. Pre- and posttesting, teacher evaluation forms, and Teacher Review Board meetings provided feedback on the following six aspects of the pilot version: need for instruction, instructional effectiveness, design of materials, content, sequencing, and test instruments. Revisions in the design, content, and sequencing of the Weight Unit, and the accompanying tests, grew directly out of the formative evaluation plan of the Weight Unit. The value of this step in the overall evaluation plan of the Vocabulary Development Project was confirmed by the relatively final form of the Measurement of Weight Unit which resulted. (GW)
