The Comparative Effectiveness of Selected Instructional Strategies for the Teaching of Basic Algebra.
Newman, Henry Jack
This study compares the effectiveness of three instructional strategies: programed self-instruction, tutored programed instruction, and lecture-demonstration. Classes of students were chosen by use of three pretests in order to insure that they needed a basic algebra course and that they had achieved readiness skills. Classes were ranked according to mean pretest score and arranged in blocks of three; treatment were randomly assigned within blocks. Parallel pretests and posttests were administered to experimental classes. Data were submitted to analyses of variance and covariance. No significant differences were uncovered. The author suggests several questions for further research. (SD)
