The general problem of this study was to determine the relative effectiveness or general progress of instruction of school children in English speaking countries of the world as compared with the progress in certain Kansas schools. Teachers and headmasters in the foreign countries were careful to mention the fact that many processes of learning are different in their country than it is in the United States. Such spelling words as program (programme), center (centre), and labor (labour) could not be used, and problems dealing in dollars and cents were not used.
