Evaluation of Non-Instructional Factors Associated with Learning in Title I Students. PREPS Research Project. 1978-79.
Abram, Marie J.; Cobb, Robert A.
This report of a research project examines the relationship between learning gain and certain noninstructional factors. Specifically, the comprehension, vocabulary, and mathematics gains of Title I students enrolled in a particular elementary school during the 1978-79 school year were correlated with 19 noninstructional variables collected from parents, students, and school records. The overall purpose of the study was to explore how each of the variables were associated with learning gain. A secondary purpose was to find a limited number of variables which would account for a substantial proportion of the learning gain so that intervention could focus on the few variables that appeared to have the greatest probability of producing increased learning gain. The research procedures included a statement of the problem, a description of the instrumentation, a discussion of the population and sampling techniques, data collection procedures, and limitations and findings of the research.
