RESPONSE COMPLEXITY AND EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN.
SNOW, RICHARD E.
THE SELECTION AND USE OF RESPONSE VARIABLES IN EDUCATIONAL EXPERIMENTS USING MULTIVARIATE ANALYSIS WERE CONSIDERED AND ASSESSED. RESPONSE VARIABLES WERE DEEMED CENTRAL CONCERNS FOR EITHER THEORETICAL OR PRACTICALLY ORIENTED RESEARCH, AND THEIR COMPLEXITY WAS DEALT WITH UNDER THE HEADINGS OF APTITUDE INPUT MEASURES, REPEATED LEARNING MEASURES, MULTIPLE LEARNING MEASURES, AND APTITUDE OUTPUT MEASURES. IT WAS CONCLUDED THAT, IF INSTRUCTIONAL METHODS AND PROCESSES ARE TO BE UNDERSTOOD AND IMPROVED, RESPONSE COMPLEXITY PROBLEMS MUST BE SOLVED. EARLY EMPHASIS SHOULD BE PLACED ON THE ASSESSMENT OF (1) THE NATURE OF STUDENT APTITUDES AS THEY INTERACT WITH TEACHING AND LEARNING PROCESSES, (2) THE COURSE OR PATTERNING OF THESE PROCESSES ACROSS THE OCCASIONS ON WHICH THEY OCCUR, (3) THE EXTENSITY OF INSTRUCTIONAL EFFECTS AS WELL AS THE INTENSITY OF ANY ONE EFFECT, AND (4) THE ENDURING CHANGES AND SUBSEQUENT EFFECTS OF LEARNING RELATIVE TO THE PATTERN OF INTELLECTUAL DEVELOPMENT IN GENERAL. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT THE ANNUAL STATE CONFERENCE ON EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH (18TH, SAN FRANCISCO, NOVEMBER 18, 1966). (GD)
