Content Analysis of Houghton Mifflin Mathematics Program for Elementary Grades K-6.
Buchanan, Aaron; And Others
The purpose of the analysis was to provide a profile of instructional activities related to content and referenced to specified instructional outcome areas. Emphasis was placed on determination of four major factors: (1) major outcomes in the program and their relative emphasis in both regular and supplementary instructional materials, (2) the distribution of content within and across instructional units (chapters), (3) points in the instructional sequence where mastery of outcomes is assessed, and (4) the amount of independent practice in regular and supplementary instructional materials related directly to each major outcome developed in the program. The analysis was based on 12 content strands and 5 substrands. Results of the analysis are presented in a series of tables which show the page locations of topics. Locations of diagnostic tests are also indicated. The completed analysis forms the basis for preliminary specification of an application of Learning Mastery System procedures to the series.
