THE RELATIONSHIP OF SELECTED COGNITIVE ABILITIES TO CONCEPT ATTAINMENT AND INFORMATION PROCESSING.
LEMKE, ELMER A.; AND OTHERS
FACTOR ANALYSIS WAS CONDUCTED ON SEVERAL COGNITIVE ABILITIES IN AN EFFORT TO RELATE THESE ABILITIES TO TASKS OF CONCEPT ATTAINMENT AND INFORMATION PROCESSING. THE ABILITIES UNDER CONSIDERATION WERE DESCRIBED AS GENERAL REASONING, VERBAL COMPREHENSION, INDUCTION, DEDUCTION, SPATIAL SCANNING, PERCEPTUAL SPEED, ROTE MEMORY, AND SPAN MEMORY. ABILITY AND TASK SCORES WERE OBTAINED FROM A SAMPLE OF 94 FEMALE COLLEGE STUDENTS ENROLLED IN EDUCATIONAL PSYCHOLOGY. INTERCORRELATIONS AND FACTOR ANALYSES WERE PERFORMED ON 34 TASK AND ABILITY VARIABLES. THREE ABILITIES (GENERAL REASONING, INDUCTION, AND VERBAL COMPREHENSION) WERE FOUND TO BE HIGHLY RELATED TO CONCEPT ATTAINMENT AND INFORMATION PROCESSING. THE CONCEPT ATTAINMENT AND INFORMATION PROCESSING TASKS WERE OBSERVED TO BE RELATIVELY DISTINCT, RATHER THAN UNITARY ACTIVITIES. (JH)
