Facilitating Inferential Thinking with Weekly Quizzes.
McKenzie, Gary R.
This study examined effects of inference quizzes on inferential thinking. A total of 213 grade 8 history students were randomly assigned to treatments within classrooms. Group R took eight weekly quizzes requiring recall of stated facts. Group I took 8 quizzes requiring students to draw inferences about interest groups. Teachers had no knowledge of quiz content or treatment membership. No between treatment differences were found on ability to recall Random Facts or Inference-Relevant Facts. Group I scored higher than R on a test requiring new inferences about the treatment interest groups. There were no differences in inferences about a new subject. (Author)
