Transactional Dialogues and Concomitance in Syntactic and Aesthetic Ordering: A Report of Studies with Deaf Subjects.
Transactional dialogues and concomitance in syntactic and aesthetic ordering were studied in 32 deaf students during 12 weeks of art classes meeting three days a week for periods of 1 hour each. The dialogues were said to have accomplished a gradual take over of mind-to-mind communication in lieu of both authority and childing. Findings indicated that the five judges evaluating the students' art products made judgments highly correlated with each other as reported on the significant correlation matrix. A second finding was that both correlational analysis and analysis of variance showed significant relationships between art quality improvement and changes toward complexity in figure preference with positive changes in development of syntax as measured by the Stanford Achievement Test scales for word meaning, paragraph meaning, and arithmetic computation skills. The third finding was that a correlation existed in some instances among scores on the Welsh Figure Preference Test art scale and low scores on art product judgments. (CB)
