Scaling and Summary Statistics for the Curriculum Implementation and Program Customizing Variables. Comparative Study of Phase IV IGE Evaluation Project. Phase IV, Project Paper 80-6.
Nerenz, Anne G.; And Others
This is one of a series of reports which provide definitions of and descriptive data on the variables used in the Comparative Study of Phase IV of the Individually Guided Education (IEG) Evaluation Project. Phase IV investigated three curriculum programs specifically designed to be compatible with instructional programming for the individual student: (1) the Wisconsin Design for Reading Skills Development (WDRSD); (2) Developing Mathematical Processes (DMP); and (3) Prereading Skills (PRS). Information on instructional methods and pupil outcomes for grades 2 and 5 was collected from achievement monitoring and domain referenced tests, teacher logs, and classroom observations. Information on background, organizational, and program variables came from questionnaires completed during structured interviews with principals, unit leaders, and teachers. This report focuses on two aspects of curriculum program use: Curriculum Implementation, a measure of the degree to which WDRSD or DMP is implemented; and Program Customizing, a measure of the extent to which the curriculum in use is altered to meet individual children's needs. A list of questionnaire items from which the variable was developed, a detailed explanation of the scaling procedures, and a description of the distribution of the variables are provided. (Author/BS)
