Cooke, Nancy L.; And Others
Education and Treatment of Children, v16 n3 p213-34 Aug 1993
Three experiments compared the effects of interspersal drill and practice using 30% new items/70% review items with 100% new items, with a total of 17 students (ages 9 to 17) having behavior disorders, emotional handicaps, learning disabilities, or mild mental retardation. The ratios were compared for instruction in spelling, multiplication facts, and reading fluency. Results depended on subject matter. (Author/DB)
