EXPLORATIONS OF THE RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN UNDERSTANDING AND DRILL IN THE LEARNING PROCESS.
REYNOLDS, JAMES H.
FIVE EXPERIMENTS WERE RUN AS A SERIES OF INITIAL EXPLORATIONS TO DETERMINE A WORKABLE, RESEARCH DEFINITION OF THE TERM "UNDERSTANDING" AND TO EVALUATE EXPERIMENTALLY ITS RELATIONSHIP TO DRILL, OR ROTE LEARNING. THE FIVE EXPERIMENTS DEALT WITH THE EFFECTS OF A VISUALLY IMPOSED COGNITIVE STRUCTURE UPON ROTE LEARNING, THE EFFECTS UPON ROTE LEARNING OF STRUCTURES IMPOSED BY VISUAL AS OPPOSED TO AUDITORY STIMULI, THE TRANSFER EFFECTS AFTER PREFAMILIARIZATION WITH INTEGRATED AS OPPOSED TO PARTIALLY INTEGRATED VERBAL-PERCEPTUAL STRUCTURES, FURTHER EVALUATION OF DIFFERENCES BETWEEN INTEGRATED AND PARTIALLY INTEGRATED VERBAL-PERCEPTUAL STRUCTURES, AND THE ABSTRACTNESS OF COGNITIVE STRUCTURE AND RETROACTIVE INHIBITION. THE RESULTS OF THE EXPERIMENTS GENERALLY INDICATED THAT A VIABLE DEFINITION OF THE TERM "UNDERSTANDING" WAS ACHIEVED BY RELATING IT TO THE THEORETICAL TERM "COGNITIVE STRUCTURE," AND THAT EMPIRICAL EVIDENCE EVALUATING THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN COGNITIVE STRUCTURE AND ROTE LEARNING COULD BE OBTAINED.
