A Study of Time Spent Working at Learning Centers. Technical Report #17.
Omori, Sharon; And Others
This study examined the proportion of time children in the Kamehameha Early Education Program schools spend at actual school work in learning centers. Systematic time-sampled observations using multiple observers were conducted in December-January and again in March-April. The subjects, 12 children (6 kindergarteners and 6 first graders) were observed two times each in the two time periods by five staff members. Observations were coded for two mutually exclusive behavioral categories of pupil activity: on-task (work appropriate behavior) and not on-task (behavior not appropriate for the situation, and play behavior following completion of work). Results indicated that children spent proportionately less time working (on-task behavior) than on non-work activities (not on-task behavior). (CM)
