Factors in Time-Variable Learning Allowed by Computer Delivered Interactive Testing.
Evans, Richard M.; Surkan, Alvin J.
Students undergoing a mastery-variable time-variable undergraduate educational psychology course were studied in order to determine the effects of level of mastery chosen (by the students for a final grade) on time taken to reach criterion level over five course examinations. When equated for trials to criterion, no such grade aspiration effect was found. A factor analysis of 23 course-related measures found time allowed for learning an important source of variation in a Mastery Learning teaching strategy, while academic aptitude was relatively unimportant. The study demonstrated how low-cost microcomputers can provide time flexibility in school curriculum. (Author/VT)
