Integrating Findings from Different Levels of Instruction.
Kulik, James A.
The type of study proposed by Cronback for studying aptitude-treatment interactions (ATIs) has proved to be disappointing in several respects: it produces ATIs that do not replicate, that are not especially interesting, and that are difficult to use in practice. Glass's meta-analysis methodology, although developed for a different purpose, sometimes yields information about ATIs: about which treatments are especially effective for certain types of learners. This point is illustrated by a survey of research on individual instruction in mathematics. It is recommended that meta-analysis be used more as a means of investigating ATIs because the results seem to be replicable, stimulating from the standpoint of instructional theory, and have clear implications for practice.
