An Assessment of the Effectiveness of the Money, Measurement and Time Program for EMR Children. Research Report No. 88.
Thurlow, Martha L.; And Others
The performance of 272 elementary school aged educable retarded children was used in the final evaluation of the five unit Money, Measurement and Time program. Criterion referenced pre- and posttests were administered to assess the effectiveness of each unit, and A Cognitive Abilities Test evaluated Ss' general improvement in non-content-specific areas of functioning. Analysis of results indicated that the gains in the Money and Time with the Clock units were significant, while the gains on the Length and Measurement of Weight units were not as impressive. Item analyses of the unit tests demonstrated that Ss' learning went beyond the immediate instruction they had received. Data on nonretarded children's performance provided normative information. Results suggested revisions in specific content for each unit. (CL)
