SLIDES – Data Analysis, Demographics and Pretest Results

To be able to compare similarities or differences between the groups, two separate statistical formulas were applied.
Aside from the fact that there were slightly more children in the Massachusetts sample than in the New York one, both groups showed no significant differences.
Before the study began, scores on the MHA and THS were compared between both NY and MA control and treatment groups. No significant differences were noted.
Interestingly though, both NY and MA first and second grade students (both experimental and control) showed noticeable differences from typical peers before the study even began on the Minnesota Handwriting Assessment.
