PROCEDURES FOR THE COLLECTION OF DATA
Louisiana State University in Shreveport (LSU-S) is a
branch campus of LSU in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. LSU-S is a
four-year degree-granting institution located in a growing
area of approximately 300,000 population and has an enroll-
ment of about 4,500. LSU-S is a commuter university with
no on—campus housing. Traditional high school graduates
constitute a large portion of the student body, but many
non-traditional and older students also attend. The
mathematics department offers a college algebra course
(Math 121) which is used as a service course for many
curricula and a precalculus course for mathematics majors.
In this study, data were collected in four Math 121 classes
taught at LSU-S during the fall semester of 1986.
Population and Sample
The population for this quasi-experimental study was
composed of students who enrolled for college algebra
classes (Math 121) at LSU—S in the fall semester of 1986.
Four of these classes were assigned to the experimenter
(teacher) through regular scheduling procedures performed
by the mathematics department chairman. The classes used
