Improving Productive Thinking by Training in Production and Judgment.
Stratton, R. Paul; Brown, Robert
Past research has indicated training in judgment and production produce contradictory results; the former increases quality and decreases productivity while the latter decreases quality and increases productivity. Four treatment conditions (no-training control, judgment training, production training, and combined training) demonstrated that the training procedures can be combined to increase judgment ability, solution quality, and productivity over separate training. Increased judgment ability enables the subjects to (a) select the information which will give the best solutions in the end, and (b) identify superior solutions once completed. Educational training procedures for productive thinking should include criteria for solution evaluation for maximum transfer. (Author)
