COLLECTING A DATA BASE FOR AN EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY. 1, EVOLVING A PSYCHOLINGUISTIC READING PROGRAM.
COLEMAN, E.B.
SOON IT WILL BE POSSIBLE TO REDUCE TO A TECHNOLOGY THE CONSTRUCTION OF MATERIALS FOR THE PRINTED COMMUNICATION SKILL IN FIRST GRADE. THIS TECHNOLOGY REQUIRES A DATA BASE, A HUGE MATRIX OF S-R FUNCTIONS THAT PLOT THE EFFECT OF A STIMULUS-DIMENSION UPON A READING RESPONSE. A CONSIDERABLE PORTION OF THE DATA BASE CAN BE PROVIDED BY REPLICATING PREVIOUS EXPERIMENTS WITH RELEVANT LEARNER POPULATIONS AND RELEVANT LANGUAGE POPULATIONS. THIS DATA BASE WOULD CALIBRATE LINGUISTIC UNITS AS TO LEARNABILITY. AN EDUCATION ENGINEER COULD ORDER THE LOW-ORDER TASKS OF READING INTO A SEQUENCE THAT WOULD FACILITATE THE INDUCTION OF MORE GENERAL CONCEPTS, SUCH AS THOSE OF PHONICS AND SPELLING. TO COLLECT A DATA BASE OF THIS MAGNITUDE, EDUCATION AND PSYCHOLOGY MUST INCREASE THE EFFICIENCY OF THEIR RESEARCH TECHNIQUES. EDUCATION MUST PRODUCE CHEAPER AND MORE EFFICIENT DATA COLLECTORS. A COMPLEMENTARY STRATEGY FOR PRODUCING MATERIALS WOULD BE TO REFINE A PROTOTYPE THROUGH A SELF-CORRECTING CYCLE OF TEST-REFINE-TEST-REFINE. A RAPIDLY EVOLVING PROTOTYPE CALLED THE PSYCHOLINGUISTIC READING PROGRAM IS DESCRIBED. TABLES AND FIGURES ARE INCLUDED. (AUTHOR)
