A Study of the Effects of Three Dimensions of Instructional Time on Academic Achievement.
Talmage, Harriet; Rasher, Sue Pinzur
In examining three dimensions of instructional time (teacher preparation time, student homework time, direct in-class instructional time), the objectives of this study were to determine which dimensions or combination of dimensions correlate with achievement, and whether the dimensions differentially affect achievement based on grade and ability level. Elementary students were given instruction in a nutrition curriculum over a three-month period. Time data were analyzed by activity, with a posttest nutrition achievement test as the dependent variable and the three time dimensions, grade, and ability levels as independent variables in a series of stepwise multiple regressions. Direct instruction consistently predicted posttest achievement. (Authors/JD)
