A Follow-Up Study on a True Experiment: Curriculum Evaluation of a School District's Educational Alternative.
Eash, Maurice J.; And Others
The results are reported of a follow-up study conducted on an experimental middle school curriculum initiated by a school district as an alternative to the traditional curriculum. The outcomes of the original experiment were favorable to the experimental curriculum. An evaluation design common to true experiments where subjects are randomized for the control of error was used. The follow-up study, maintaining the original evaluation design, examined longer-range effects of the experimental curriculum and demonstrated the value of the random assignment to treatment making possible valid generalizations and specifications of results.
