An Investigation of the Interactive Effects Among Student Types, Teacher Types, and Instructional Types on the Mathematics Achievement of Fourth Grade Students.
Ebmeier, Howard; Good, Thomas L.
This exploratory aptitude-treatment-interaction study hypothesized that various combinations of teacher types and treatment types have differential effects on different types of students. Teachers and students were clustered into types based on the similarity of their responses to a number of attitude and aptitude instruments. One-half of the teachers were selected to implement a treatment program which called for more active and direct instruction. All teachers were observed over a 16-week treatment period to insure that the treatment was implemented. Results of the analysis indicated significant interactive effects. (MP)
