Investigation of Spelling in the Schools of Oakland, California


by J. B. Sears - 1916

An extensive investigation of the subject of spelling was made in the Oakland schools during the past year, covering Grades II-VIII inclusive, in forty of the forty-one schools of the city. In addition to an examination of the general administrative policy affecting spelling, the schedules of time allotment, the content of the course, lesson-assignments, and methods and devices in use in the classrooms, a test of the efficiency of spelling was made by the use of the Ayres Springfield lists. The tests were applied to 12,985 children.
