Impact of Flexible Class Time on the Achievement and Attitude of High School Students in Plane Geometry.
Raumin, Harley Cyril
This study was designed to test the effects of a geometry course incorporating large-group, small-group, and individualized instruction on the achievement and attitudes of students. Three of six classes and teachers were randomly assigned to experimental instruction, the remainder serving as controls. Pretest measures included IQ and attitude scores. After 18 weeks of instruction, all students were given attitude and achievement posttests. Data were analyzed using t-tests, analysis of covariance, and chi-square analyses. Results indicated that both the type of teaching mode and the (prior) attitudes of students affect their achievement in plane geometry. The author recommends that teachers attempt to integrate more individualized and small-group instruction in geometry courses, and that more attention be given to the relationship between attitude and achievement.
