Aptitude-Treatment Interaction as a Mode of Evaluating First Grade Reading Interventions.
Benson, Arthur Jerry
Aptitude-treatment interactions were examined in a study involving 264 first-grade pupils randomly assigned to groups receiving perceptual training, affective education, or a combination of both, or to a comparison group receiving no supplementary instruction. Aptitude was measured using a general measure of intelligence; achievement was assessed in the areas of word knowledge, word discrimination, and reading comprehension. Analysis of results provided no support for the aptitude-treatment hypothesis on any of the criterion variables. Post hoc analyses were used to generate hypotheses for future investigations.
