Abstracts of Educational Research, vol4 n1
Abstracts of important research on cognitive style, which has implications for individualized instruction, are presented. Studies are presented which investigate the effect of early childhood coorelates of cognitive style, consider the impact of family environment on the highly intelligent and highly creative adolescent, examines similarities and differences in cognitive style between parents and their children, and investigate the functions of status variables in the development of a preferred response mode. Studies on cognitive styles and information processing deal with concept learning and information processing in the child, relate inductive reasoning to cognitive style, and investigate the interaction between cognitive style and information processing under conditions of distraction. Studies on cognitive style and academic performance, cognitive mappings, and modifiability of a conceptual tempo are also abstracted. For each study, the purpose, review of procedure, conclusion, and comment are given. (JK)
