Educational Achievements of One-Teacher and of Larger Rural Schools. Bulletin, 1928, No. 15.
Synthesizing the results of many studies (prior to 1928) regarding academic achievement in one-teacher and larger rural schools as measured by standardized tests, this U.S. Office of Education bulletin presents comparative statistics for reading, arithmetic, spelling, and handwriting. Specifically, this bulletin includes data (taken from the largest type of rural school included in the survey reports reviewed and compared with one-teacher schools in those reports) re: reading scores of pupils in rural schools of 20 states and of Logan County, Ohio (rate scores by grades in both consolidated and 1-teacher schools); reading abilities of Indiana pupils in terms of grade standards; median reading scores of Arizona pupils; reading abilities of pupils in 6 different states and arithmetic abilities in the same 6 states (Kansas, Kentucky, New York, Oklahoma, Texas, and Virginia); arithmetic scores for St. Albans Township, Licking County, Ohio; median spelling scores in 5 states (Ashbaugh Scale and Buckingham's Extension of Ayers Scale); median spelling scores in Wisconsin; spelling scores in Spokane County, Washington; median handwriting scores in 4 states; comparisons of teaching results in certain content and other subjects (history, geography, composition, and English). Generally, the results presented here indicate that students in larger rural schools achieve better academically than those trained in one-teacher schools. (JC)
