Effect of Task Sequence and Memory Support on Indian College Students. Final Report.
Boutwell, Richard C.
The multivariate effect of task sequence, memory support, and state anxiety was investigated using a nonverbal concept-acquisition task. Ninety-six Indian college students were randomly assigned to 4 treatment conditions resulting from the task sequence: easy-to-hard, memory support, and nonmemory support. Subjects receiving the easy-to-hard sequence did significantly better on the performance test than the hard-to-easy sequence. Also, the memory support treatment groups had significantly fewer errors on the performance test than the nonmemory support condition. The instructional condition of the easy-to-hard sequence plus memory support, as the optimal treatment, provides manipulatable variables for applied usage. (Author/HS)
