CLASSIFICATION ABILITIES AS RELATED TO INSTRUCTION AND ACHIEVEMENT IN EARLY ADOLESCENCE.
COPPOLINO, IDA S.
THIS IS THE REPORT OF A PILOT INVESTIGATION DESIGNED (1) TO STUDY THE ABILITY OF CHILDREN IN REGULAR CLASSROOM SETTINGS TO ORGANIZE INFORMATION THEY POSSESS IN WAYS SUGGESTED BY TWO DIMENSIONS OF THE GUILFORD STRUCTURE OF INTELLECT MODEL, AND (2) TO EVALUATE THE FEASIBILITY AND DESIRABILITY OF MAKING PARTICIPATION IN THE STUDY, IN DATA COLLECTION AND ANALYSIS, AN INTEGRAL PART OF THE PROFESSIONAL EDUCATION OF POTENTIAL TEACHERS. SUBJECTS WERE PUPILS ENROLLED IN TWO SECTIONS OF EIGHT-GRADE ENGLISH. THE GENERAL DESIGN FOR THE STUDY CONSISTED OF ADMINISTERING CLASSIFICATION TASKS, AND SCORING THE INSTRUMENTS FOR QUANTITY, ACCURACY, AND QUALITY WHERE APPROPRIATE. THE RESULTS INDICATE THAT IT IS PRACTICAL TO EXPECT TEACHERS TO BE ABLE TO ELICIT CLASSIFICATION BEHAVIOR FROM THEIR STUDENTS, AND THAT IT IS DESIRABLE FOR THEM TO DO SO. CLASSIFICATION ABILITY WAS FOUND RELATED TO ACHIEVEMENT IN SUCH SEEMINGLY DIVERSE SUBJECT MATTERS AS MATHEMATICS AND HISTORY AND IS RELATED, ALSO, TO VOCABULARY AND READING COMPREHENSION. THE FINDINGS LEND SUPPORT TO THE USE OF THE SEVERAL OPERATIONS IN STIMULATING CLASSIFYING BEHAVIOR RATHER THAN RELYING ON JUST ONE. MANY FINDINGS FROM THIS STUDY CAN BE INTERPRETED AS LENDING SUPPORT TO THE CONTINUED USE OF THE STRUCTURE OF INTELLECT IN THE PROFESSIONAL EDUCATION OF TEACHERS BOTH AS A DESCRIPTION OF INTELLECT AND AS A TAXONOMY OF EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES, AT LEAST FOR THE FACETS OF THE MODEL INVESTIGATED IN THIS STUDY.
