RELATIONSHIPS AMONG LEARNING, PRACTICE, AND RECALL, FINAL REPORT.
BETTS, MARY L.B.
THIS STUDY CONSISTED OF A SERIES OF EXPERIMENTS DESIGNED TO YIELD DATA ON THE PARAMETERS OF LEARNING IN THESE SITUATIONS--(1) THE QUANTITY OF MATERIAL TO BE LEARNED WAS GREATER THAN USUAL, AND (2) THE SCHEDULING OF LEARNING, REVIEW TRIALS, AND THE AMOUNTS OF MATERIAL PRESENTED WERE VARIED WITHIN A DESIGN JUDGED TO APPROACH OPTIMAL SCHEDULING IN CERTAIN RESPECTS. OF PARTICULAR INTEREST WERE QUESTIONS HAVING TO DO WITH THE POSSIBLE INTERFERENCE OF ONE LIST OF PAIRED-ASSOCIATE MATERIAL WITH ANOTHER, AND THE ROLE OF INDIVIDUAL DIFFERENCES IN LEARNING ABILITY. THE EXPERIMENTS INVOLVED 9 GROUPS OF COLLEGE STUDENTS, 10 SUBJECTS IN EACH GROUP. A NUMBER OF QUESTIONS CONCERNING THE LEARNING CURVE DATA WERE ANSWERED BY USING A TREND ANALYSIS WITH COVARIANCE ADJUSTMENTS FOR ABILITY SCORES. IN ADDITION, A MULTIPLE REGRESSION EQUATION WAS USED TO ASSESS THE USEFULNESS OF SIX VARIABLES IN PREDICTING LEARNING TIMES. THE AUTHOR POINTS OUT THAT THE ANALYSES PRESENTED DO NOT DEPICT A COMPLETE PICTURE OF LEARNING. HOWEVER, MANY OF THE FINDINGS ARE NEW AND OF THEORETICAL AND PRACTICAL INTEREST. (JC)
