Description - Transfer from the Primary Classroom by Maurice Galton

The ORACLE study (observation and classroom learning and evaluation) which took place from 1975 to 1980, followed by "Son of ORACLE", the study of groupwork in the primary classroom 1980 to 1983, have had a great influence on the debate on primary education. The studies described in detail what took place in primary classrooms, the teaching styles used by teachers and the responses made by pupils. It linked these processes to pupil performance. Finally, it followed the pupils as they transferred out of the primary school into the secondary phase of education. At present a new research project is being carried out in Leicester. It involves studying primary schools for one year and then following the children as they transfer to the secondary phase or to a middle school. The project involves two thirds of the schools used in the original ORACLE research. In addition, the same observation instruments and the same tests, modified for cultural differences, are being used.
