SEQUENCE CHARACTERISTICS OF TEXT MATERIALS AND TRANSFER OF LEARNING, PART 1--EXPERIMENTS IN DISCOVERY LEARNING.
DELLA-PIANA, GABRIEL M.; AND OTHERS
THE TRANSFER EFFECTS OF DISCOVERY AND EXPOSITORY INSTRUCTIONAL TECHNIQUES FOR SEQUENCING OF INSTRUCTION WERE THE PURPOSE OF THIS TWO-PART STUDY. THE FIRST STUDY COMPARED THE TWO PROCEDURES IN A PROGRAMED UNIT ON SUMMING NUMBER SERIES. SAMPLES FOR THIS PART OF THE STUDY CONSISTED OF 96 NINTH-GRADE ALGEBRA STUDENTS, WHO WERE ASSIGNED TO EITHER OF THE TWO TREATMENTS. THE SECOND STUDY COMPARED THE PROCEDURES WITH TEACHER PRESENTATION ON SELECTED MATHEMATICAL CONCEPTS. SAMPLES CONSISTED OF 538 FIFTH- AND SIXTH-GRADE STUDENTS WHO RECEIVED INSTRUCTIONS BY THE TWO METHODS AND NORMAL INSTRUCTION. DATA WERE OBTAINED FOR TIME AND ERROR SCORES ON THE PROGRAM, AND RETENTION AND TRANSFER MEASURES. ANALYSES INVOLVED SIMPLE COMPARISONS OF MEANS AND VARIANCE. THE RESULTS INDICATED THAT THE GUIDED DISCOVERY SEQUENCING AND METHOD WAS SUPERIOR IN TRANSFER EFFECTS AND RETENTION OF CONCEPTS TO EXPOSITION. FURTHER RESEARCH SUGGESTIONS ARE DIRECTED TOWARD TREATMENT-APTITUDE INTERACTIONS AND USING APPROACHES TO ELICIT PROBLEM-SOLVING PROCESSES. THIS REPORT DESCRIBED THE DETAILED PROCEDURES. SAMPLE COPIES OF THE MATERIALS USED WERE ASSIGNED ACCESSION NUMBER ED 003 347. (RS)
