CRITERIA IN LEARNING RESEARCH, REPORT ON A CONFERENCE (WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY, 1966).
DUBOIS, PHILIP H.; WIENTGE, KING M.
THE TOPICS OF EIGHT CONFERENCE PAPERS INCLUDE (1) THE PROBLEM OF DIFFERENTIATING EFFECTS OF SPECIFIC INSTRUCTION FROM EFFECTS OF OTHER INFLUENCES (GROWTH, ENVIRONMENT, AND SELF-INSTRUCTION), (2) CRITERIA FOR MEASURING CHANGE IN PROFICIENCY, AND (3) WAYS OF RELATING SUCH CHANGE TO OUTSIDE VARIABLES SUCH AS MEASURABLE CHARACTERISTICS OF LEARNERS AND INSTRUCTORS, AND METHODOLOGY. THE ISSUE OF ACCEPTABLE CRITERIA (PERFORMANCE MEASURES) OF DEGREES OF LEARNING DURING PRACTICE IS DISCUSSED. SUGGESTIONS ARE OUTLINED FOR IMPROVING EXPERIMENTATION BY ASSEMBLING ALL APPROPRIATE MEASUREMENTS AND DATA, USING ORDERED HYPOTHESES, AND TREATING EXPERIMENTAL CLASSROOMS AS SINGLE SUBJECTS. THE BROMWOODS RESIDENTIAL CENTER STUDY OF WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY DESCRIBES THE FAILURE OF RESIDENTIAL STUDENTS TO SIGNIFICANTLY SURPASS ADULT EVENING CLASSES IN OBJECTIVE KNOWLEDGE (BEGINNING PSYCHOLOGY) OR IN IMPROVED MEASURED ATTITUDE. ALSO, DIFFICULTIES IN APPLICATION OF CRITERIA IN NAVAL MAINTENANCE TRAINING RESEARCH ARE DOCUMENTED, AND CORRECTIVE PROCEDURES ARE INDICATED. A PAPER ON THE CURVILINEAR RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN KNOWLEDGE AND TEST PERFORMANCE ARGUES FOR FINAL EXAMINATIONS AS THE BEST EXISTING INDICANT OF LEARNING. OTHER PAPERS OUTLINE A FRAMEWORK FOR STUDYING CRITERION MEASURES AND THEIR GENERALIZABILITY ACROSS SAMPLES, SITUATIONS, AND CONTEXTS, AND EVALUATE PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION AMONG NAVAL TRAINEES AS A PREDICTOR OF CLASSROOM LEARNING. THE DOCUMENT INCLUDES TABLES, FIGURES, AND REFERENCES. (LY)
