The Effects of Individualizing Instruction by the Use of Multi-Sensory Multi-Media Learning Centers on Reading and Arithmetic Achievement of Inner-City Children.
Jacob, Jasmine Fernando
A sample of 211 inner-city fifth- and sixth-grade students participated in a study of the effects on achievement and independence of an individualized instructional program using multisensory, multimedia learning centers. Experimental and control groups differed in method of instruction but not in content covered. Results from pre- and post-course administrations of the California Achievement Tests indicated that the experimental group made significantly greater progress in reading, but not in arithmetic, than did the control group. It was also found that a greater number of experimental students than of control students displayed independence and self-direction. Differences in the experimental program's effectiveness with boys and girls, and with students of high and low ability, were also examined. (Author/AA)
