The Comparative Effects on Two Methods of Automated Instruction, One Visual and One Auditory, in Teaching Selected Problem Solving Behaviors to Two Groups of Sixth Grade Students.
Walker, Mary Ann
The purpose of this research was to measure the effectiveness of two methods of automated instruction in teaching sixth grade students selected problem solving behaviors, namely observing, comparing, classifying, interpreting, analyzing, making assumptions, summarizing, and critical thinking. Two treatments (one visual and one auditory) were administered to the two experimental groups in three sessions on three successive days. The control group received no treatment. The cognitive framework for both treatments was based on the theory and research of Raths. The principal instrument used to measure problem solving was the Otis-Lennon Mental Ability Test. All hypotheses offered for testing in this study were supported and resulted in no significant differences in the selected problem solving behaviors of the three groups. (Author/MM)
