A Comparison of Reading and Vocabulary Achievement of Elementary Students Taught with Two Reading Teaching Methods.
Hendon, Carl Adriel
The purpose of this study was to compare student reading and vocabulary achievement of classes using a standard basal-reading series with the achievement of a class using the same standard basal-reading series and a computer-managed, teacher-support system in reading. The reading and vocabulary achievement growth of a sample of 40 classes of elementary students taught by a basal reading series method during the 1972-73 school year provided the control group data for this study. The next year the same teachers' classes were taught by using the same standard basal-reading series in conjunction with a computer-managed, teacher-support system. The achievement growth of these classes provided the experimental data for the study. There was a difference at the .05 level of significance between classes' reading scores indicating that greater growth was obtained by students in classes using only the basal-reading series.
