Effects of alternative goal structures within curriculum-based assessment by Lynn Fuchs( Book )
3 editions published between 1988 and 1990 in English and held by 72 libraries worldwide
The study assessed the effects of alternative goal structures within curriculum based assessment (cba) in the area of math. Subjects were 30 elementary level special education teachers, assigned randomly to a dynamic goal cba, static goal cba, or control group for 15 weeks. Two pupils in each class were identified to evaluate the effects of the instructional intervention. In the dynamic goal condition, teachers employed cba, and (1) modified instructional programs when student progress fell below expectations and (2) increased goals when student progress exceeded expectations. In the static goal condition, teachers employed cba and modified programs when progress was below expectations, but did not systematically increase goals in response to progress that exceeded anticipated improvement rates. Multivariate analyses of variance conducted on fidelity of treatment measures indicated that dynamic goal teachers increased goals more frequently and, by the study's completion, employed more ambitious goals. Multivariate analyses of covariance indicated that students in the dynamic goal group had better content mastery than control students, whereas students in the static goal group did not. Content coverage for the three groups was comparable. Implications for instructional goal-setting practice are discussed. (Author/DB)

Predicting succession under conditions of enrollment decline by Michael A Berger( Book )
2 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 51 libraries worldwide
Three possible explanations for superintendent succession focus on poor administrative performance, district response strategies, and the politics of the chief executive's relationship with the school board. To analyze succession in the context of declining enrollment, a case study survey was conducted of 56 school districts whose peak enrollment year was 1970-71 or before. Data from these districts were gathered over a 10-year period to allow enough time for succession to occur. Performance was measured according to three variables (pupil-teacher ratio, per pupil expenditures, and facility utilization), district response according to 10 strategies (including lobbying for tax increases, freeze hiring, and reduction-in-force), and the politics of succession in terms of the superintendent's relationship to three constituencies: the board, teachers, and community. Results of discriminant analysis of survey findings confirm the usefulness of performance, strategy, and political variables as predictors of executive succession. The data suggest that the superintentent's relationships with the board and the community are of particular political significance and that bold administrative response strategies and high per pupil expenditures tend to result in succession. Superintendent-community relations, superintendent-board relations, response scope, and per pupil expenditures thus emerge as the four principal factors distinguishing succession and nonsuccession districts. A 44-item reference list is appended. (Jbm)

The Adventures of Jasper Woodbury ( visu )
in English and held by 9 libraries worldwide
Six episodes that present stories with challenging problems to solve using information presented in the stories " ... to develop several cognitive skills in students, especially mathematics problem-solving skills. The skills include planning, formulating problems, finding and constructing information, mathematical calculation and decision-making." Each disc contains the overview for the series
Blueprint for success ( visu )
1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 8 libraries worldwide

Journey to Cedar Creek ( file )
2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 7 libraries worldwide
The episodes in this series are organized around mathematical content areas and themes as recommended for middle-grade math curriculum. They include the relationship between distance, rate and time, statistics, and geometry. The themes provide a real-world context: complex trip planning, business planning, architectural design, and way-finding. In this episode students meet Jasper Woodbury as he decides to buy a boat up the Cumberland River at Cedar Creek Marinia. There, he learns that its running lights are not working and that it has a temporary fuel tank. Students are challanged to help Jasper determine if he can make it home before sunset without running out of fuel
