Overprompting Science Students Using Adjunct Study Questions.
Holliday, William G.
Described is an investigation of the hypothesis that students presented with strong hints or prompts to answers of comprehension questions adjunct to a flow diagram would understand less than students presented with no prompts. Also described is the study of the hypotheses that a diagram-only treatment group would outperform the prompted group and all treatment groups would outperform a placebo-control group. The research, based on the selective attention model, is described as supportive of the model, and recommends an instructional goal for teachers. (SA)
