Standardized Test Results, 1972-75: KEEP and Selected Comparison Groups. Technical Report #36.
To verify the assumption that research activities do not interfere with the normal instruction given to students in the demonstration school of the Kamehameha Early Education Program (KEEP), each class's educational and intellectual achievement was assessed, and comparisons were made with other classes in Hawaii. This report compares the results of standardized IQ and achievement tests given to KEEP Classes I, II, and III with results from a school in a rural area of a neighbor island and a school in a middle-class suburb of Honolulu. The results are presented for administrations of the Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence (WPPSI), the California Test of Mental Maturity (CTMM), the Metropolitan Readiness Test (MRT), and the Gates-MacGinitie Reading Test. The data indicate that KEEP is meeting its educational responsibilities for its three classes in terms of academic readiness and general intellectual achievement, both in comparison to national norms and to relatively comparable schools.
