Library of Congress Subject Heading

Slow learning children; Schools


The present study compares the academic achievement of these exceptional children as observed in two regular school settings. Which group of children, within the IQ range of lowest given point to 89, or "those in Multi-Graded or those in Single-Graded Schools in regular classrooms" shows the greater amount of academic achievement over a specified period of time? The study is supported by a twofold objective: (1) to investigate whether or not a difference in amount of academic achievement exists between children attending Multi-Graded and Single-Graded Schools; (2) to show in which of the five basic areas--English, spelling, arithmetic, religion, and reading, or possibly the total battery--the greatest amount of gain in academic achievement lies.
