A Study of the Effectiveness of the Comprehensive School Mathematics Program.
Aldridge, Elizabeth A.; Baskerville, Emily T.
Prior to an extensive literary and active research, the researchers hypothesized that the Comprehensive School Mathematics Program (CSMP) would be effective only if implemented on a school-wide, uniform manner that followed the strict CSMP guidelines. Two extensive surveys on teacher attitudes concerning CSMP were administered to teachers in a rural elementary school. One survey questioned CSMP teachers, and the other questioned non-CSMP teachers. Results indicated that a varied approach to CSMP can exist successfully in a school, despite some shortcomings with the CSMP program. A detailed description and history of the CSMP program and important details gathered from the extensive 15-year pilot trial of CSMP are included. Appendices include the surveys used in the study. Contains 25 references. (Author/MKR)
