Instructional, Context, and Individual Differences in Pupil Involvement in Learning Activity.
Cornbleth, Catherine; Korth, Willard
Assuming that pupil involvement in academic learning activities (involved time) is a behavioral indicator of pupil learning, this study examined two context variables (subject area, day of the week) one instructional variable (activity format) and one pupil variable (previous achievement growth) in relation to pupil involved time. Individual pupil behavior was observed in fourth grade classrooms and coded according to type of academic activity and activity format (individual, group) during language arts, math, science, and social studies. Differences in involved time were found for subject area, day of the week, and achievement growth. The results were discussed in terms of their implications for making more effective use of allocated instructional time. (Author/MP)
