The Effects of Implementing Bloom's Taxonomy and Utilizing the Virginia Standards of Learning Curriculum Framework to Develop Mathematics Lessons for Elementary Students
Hawks, Kristel W.
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Liberty University
The purpose of this study was to determine if teachers who developed lessons based on Bloom's Taxonomy and the "Virginia Standards of Learning Curriculum Framework" saw increased scores on the mathematics benchmark assessment for fourth grade. Two classes taught by different mathematics teachers participated. The mean of the posttest scores for the experimental group in which the teachers developed lessons using Bloom's Taxonomy would be significantly higher than the mean of the group which used textbook bound instruction. An analysis of covariance was conducted, and the hypothesis was rejected. The experimental group would yield significant gains as measured by the difference between the pretest and posttest scores. The hypothesis was retained as a result of a paired-samples t-test. [The dissertation citations contained here are published with the permission of ProQuest LLC.
