Acquisition, Retention, and Transfer in an Individualized College Physics Course.
Moore, J. William; And Others
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of Continuous Progress (mastery) instruction on acquisition, retention, and transfer in an introductory college physics course. Freshmen, stratified according to major, were randomly assigned to Continuous Progress and Traditional Instruction groups. The Continuous Progress group showed greater acquisition, greater transfer to a related course, and greater retention a year later. The results are discussed in terms of both support for Gagne's theory of hierarchically related knowledge and for their practical significance. (Author/CP)
