Cognitive Changes in Adulthood.
Monge, Rolf H.
Originally prepared for the Workshop to Increase and to Improve University Teacher Training Programs in Adult Basic Education, Chicago, March 1969, this paper reviews a five year project, begun in 1966, on adult age differences in cognitive performance and learning. One purpose of this project is to determine differences in cognitive abilities, with special reference to items selected as suitable for adults of differing ages; to survey the educational background and skills that younger and older adults bring to learning situations; and to study age differences in learning orientation and other relevant personality characteristics. Another aim is to investigate experimentally the interaction of the above variables with a learner's age in determining learning and performance. Eighteen references are included. (LY)
