Summary

A three-year Individually Prescribed Instruction (IPI) project in mathematics was initiated at Hall Elementary School in Minneapolis, September 1969, under ESEA Title I funding. Hall School is in a low income area of the city and nearly all children in the project were considered educationally disadvantaged. First year evaluation results show that students in the program made gains in mathematics equal to gains made by average students throughout the nation. When compared with students who were also below average in mathematics achievement, the Hall School students made better than expected gains. IPI students also made greater gains in mathematics than did students in three comparable Title I schools which were not on the IPI program. It was estimated that from 15 to 30 percent of the standardized test items were not related to the IPI curriculum and that as much as 75 percent of the IPI curriculum was not measured by these standardized tests. Reactions of teachers and teacher aides to the IPI project were generally favorable. Student preferences for mathematics rose. In grades two and three, mathematics was preferred over all other subjects including gymnasium and art, two subjects which initially had higher preferences. (Author/JM)
