An Experimental Comparison of Certain Cueing Systems in Group Problem-Solving.
Buchholz, Steve W.; Petelle, John L.
This study investigated several questions generated by cueing system research. The cueing system is perceived as a means of directing our categorizing behaviors in the processing and recall of information. Experiments involved a comparison of categorical cueing systems on a given task in relation to two control areas: (1) subjects using a free recall format and (2) subjects given eighteen random words. The experimenter sought to determine if there is any difference in the viability of various cueing systems and if a random set of cues facilitate idea generation as well as a more fully developed system. He used a four level, one-dimensional analysis of variance: Wilson's and Arnold's attributes and relationships; Kant's categories of understanding; a randomized word list on the problem area; and control groups operating under the auspices of free recall.
