Effect of an Advanced Organizer, A Post Organizer, or Knowledge of a Behavioral Objective on Achievement and Retention of a Mathematical Concept.
Peterson, John C.
This study investigated the effect an advanced organizer, a post organizer, or knowledge of a behavioral objective has on learning the mathematical concept of network tracing. Self-instructional booklets on network tracing were given to eighth grade students. The booklets were designed so that the instruction and posttest could be completed within a regular class period. Pages for the advanced organizer, post organizer, and knowledge of a behavioral objective varied according to the experimental treatment in a 2x2x2 factorial design. A retention test was given one week later. Analysis of variance was used to examine the data. A significant negative main effect for post organizers was found on the retention test. Similar but not significant results were found on the learning test. (Author/FL)
