A SYSTEM FOR CLASSIFYING THOUGHT PROCESSES IN THE CONTEXT OF CLASSROOM VERBAL INTERACTION.
ASCHNER, MARY J.; AND OTHERS
STUDY WAS MADE OF THE VERBAL PERFORMANCE OF TEACHERS AND STUDENTS IN ORDER TO ASSESS THE QUALITY OF THINKING THAT IS ELICITED AND EXPRESSED IN THE COURSE AND CONTENT OF CLASSROOM OPERATION. TECHNIQUES OF RECORDING AND THEN OF MARKING AND CLASSIFYING WHAT MEMORY, CONVERGENT THINKING, EVALUATIVE THINKING, DIVERGENT THINKING, AND ROUTINE, AND THEIR SUBCLASSES WERE DEFINED AND DESCRIBED. DETERMINATION OF THE FOLLOWING WAS DESIRED--(1) THE CHARACTER OF THINKING OPERATIONS, BOTH PRODUCTIVE AND NONPRODUCTIVE AS PERFORMED IN THE CONTEXT OF VERBAL INTERACTION (AS DISTINCT FROM PERFORMANCE ON WRITTEN TESTS), (2) THE RELATIVE FREQUENCY WITH WHICH THE VARIETY OF THINKING OPERATIONS OCCUR WHILE CLASS IS IN SESSION, AND (3) THE EXTENT TO WHICH VARIOUS TEACHING PROCEDURES AND CLASSROOM ACTIVITIES AFFECT THE AMOUNT AND QUALITY OF PRODUCTIVE THINKING EXHIBITED IN STUDENT VERBAL PERFORMANCE. THE DESIGN IS MEANT TO INFORM READERS ABOUT THE SYSTEM FOR CLASSIFYING THROUGHT PROCESSES IN THE CONTEXT OF CLASSROOM VERBAL INTERACTION. IT IS NOT A TRAINING MANUAL. THE DEVELOPMENT OF THIS SYSTEM WAS MADE POSSIBLE BY A GRANT FROM THE COOPERATIVE RESEARCH PROJECT 965 ED 001 307.
