Mathematics Applied to Novel Situations (MANS) Test Data. Third Grade. Evaluation Report 4-B-2. Extended Pilot Trial of the Comprehensive School Mathematics Program.
Dougherty, Knowles; Herbert, Martin
The Comprehensive School Mathematics Program (CSMP) is a program of CEMREL, Inc., one of the national educational laboratories, and was funded by the National Institute of Education (NIE). Its major purpose is the development of curriculum materials for the elementary grades. Beginning in 1973, CSMP ran an extended pilot trial of its elementary program. This material looks at whether CSMP students after several years are better able to deal with certain kinds of novel mathematical situations than other pupils. The results of administration of a series of tests called Mathematics Applied to Novel Situations (MANS) are reported. Results indicate classes who have used CSMP curriculum for at least 3 years score better than classes of students who have not. The findings hold for classes at different ability levels, at all testing sites, for both sexes, for right- and left-handers, and for pupils regardless of teachers' judgement of their best learning situation.
