A Comparison of the Industriousness Levels of KEEP and Public School Students. Technical Report #55.
Antill, Ellen; Tharp, Roland G.
This report compares the on-task behavior (industriousness) of K-3 students in the demonstration school of the Kamehameha Early Education Program (KEEP) with that of children from classes in four public schools. Industriousness was measured by tallying the occurrence of such behaviors as working on an appropriate task, attending to the teacher, or generally behaving as the learning situation required. In general, only data collected in the morning during reading, language arts or kindergarten readiness classes were used in the analyses. Results indicated a higher level of on-task behavior in the KEEP classrooms than in the public school classrooms. These differences were significant for the comparisons between KEEP and three of the four public school classrooms. (BD)
