Information Processing and Concept Learning at Grades 6, 8, and 10 as a Function of Cognitive Style.
Fredrick, Wayne C.
This research furthers our understanding of the relationship between an organismic factor, "cognitive style," and performance on concept learning and information processing tasks. These results, obtained from students in grades six, eight, and 10, indicate that not only do "high analytical" type students perform better on this experimental task, but they also do better in certain school subjects. It was concluded that the Hidden Figures Test does measure level of field articulation in adolescents, and that significant differences between analytical and non-analytical subjects exist in intelligence, achievement, and information processing and concept learning abilities.
