Teacher Questionnaire Data. Third Grade. Evaluation Report 4-C-1. Extended Pilot Trial of the Comprehensive School Mathematics Program.
Herbert, Martin; Small, Ava
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 responses to a questionnaire by all 69 third-grade teachers of CSMP in May 1977. Further, the document summarizes the responses by 32 of the teachers to interviews. Results showed a definitely favorable attitude towards CSMP on the part of the teachers, but the responses were less favorable than from the previous year's third-grade teachers. Further, responses were also less favorable than in previous grade levels, and new-to-CSMP teachers responded less favorably than veterans of CSMP did. Also, there were many indications that teachers saw more need for emphasis on basic skills. (MP)
