On-line Computer Applications in Research into Attitude Change. Applications in Farm Management Education.
Salmon, Peter William
In an attempt to solve the problems of measuring attitude change, a dynamic testing procedure was developed that appears to be applicable to the fields of adult education, attitude theory research, and clinical counseling. This monograph, developed in a particular field of adult education (farm management), argues that, when people are able to externalize their cognitive processes, they are better able to understand how they act and incorporate new concepts into their cognitive system. It then illustrates the procedures used to design a computer-based interactive simulation game and associated computer-based psychological monitoring program to provide feedback to the participant.
