Programmatic Research and Demonstration Project in Physical Education for the Severely Mentally Retarded. Year II Investigation. Final Report, August 1, 1977 through July 31, 1978.
Wessel, Janet A.
The major component of the second year investigation was to study the relative effectiveness of an innovative individualized instructional system in physical education (I CAN) for severely retarded elementary age students. Seven students randomly selected from either an I CAN class or a control class were used for all analyses. Data were collected on a pre-post basis. Of the ten performance objectives, five were statistically significant (p plus or minus .05 favoring I CAN). No significant gains were obtained in favor of the control group. Appended are various forms and schedules used in the investigation. (Author/DB)
