STRATEGIES OF LEARNING AND EFFICIENCY OF CONCEPT ATTAINMENT BY INDIVIDUALS AND GROUPS.
KLAUSMEIER, HERBERT J.; AND OTHERS
AN ATTEMPT WAS MADE TO IDENTIFY AND CLASSIFY THE STRATEGIES OF INDIVIDUALS AND GROUPS IN ATTAINING CONCEPTS AND TO RELATE THE VARIOUS STRATEGIES TO EFFICIENCY OF LEARNING. THE PROJECT, CONSISTING OF A SERIES OF 10 EXPERIMENTS, WAS CARRIED OUT OVER A 3-YEAR PERIOD. IN EACH SUCCESSIVE SEMESTER AND SUMMER SESSION, STUDENTS ENROLLED IN EDUCATIONAL PSYCHOLOGY PARTICIPATED IN THE EXPERIMENTS AS INDIVIDUALS OR AS MEMBERS OF GROUPS OF VARYING SIZE. EXPERIMENTS WERE CONDUCTED TO DETERMINE THE SIZE AT WHICH THE MEAN EFFICIENCY OF GROUPS IS LESS THAN THE MEAN EFFICIENCY OF INDIVIDUALS WORKING ALONE. IN ADDITION TO GROUP SIZE, THE TYPE OF MATERIAL IN WHICH THE CONCEPTS ARE EMBEDDED, TYPE OF INSTRUCTION, AND THE MEANINGFULNESS OF THE TASKS WERE SYSTEMATICALLY MANIPULATED TO DETERMINE THEIR EFFECTS UPON THE DEPENDENT VARIABLES--STRATEGIES OF LEARNING AND EFFICIENCY OF PERFORMANCE. FIVE HYPOTHESES WERE TESTED. A DISCUSSION OF THE DIFFICULTY CHARACTERISTICS AND EFFECTS OF SELECTED VARIABLES ON INFORMATION PROCESSING AND INFORMATION UTILIZATION DURING CONCEPT ATTAINMENT IS INCLUDED. (JC)
