Evaluating a Procedure to Maintain Student Progress in Personalized Instruction Courses.
Bono, Stephen F.; Keenan, John B.
A fading procedure to maintain student pacing in personalized instruction courses in two settings--a small educational psychology course at a public university and a large psychology course at a private university--was investigated. Students in both courses were divided into two groups. The first group had gradually lengthened unit completion deadlines (target dates) and the other group had no pacing restrictions. No differences were found for grade point averages and pretest scores, units mastered at target dates, final examination scores, pre/post gain scores, unit quiz attempts, and instructor-student contacts.
