The Relationship between Stimulus and Response Prompts under Two Types of Programmed Presentations.
Young, Jon I.; And Others
Prompts in concept classification normally occur on the stimulus, while in memorization tasks prompts customarily are given on the response. Opposite results have been obtained for these two tasks with excessive prompting. This study used English-Russian word pairs to compare stimulus prompts (underlining the English word) with response prompts in contextual and simple (not contextual) memorization tasks. The English-Russian words were taken from Faust and Anderson's article (pp. 3-10) in the 1967 volume of "Journal of Educational Psychology." The results indicated that stimulus prompts produced more correct responses with the no contextual presentation. Stimulus prompts were more effective than response prompts in the contextual presentations. A significant interaction between prompts and presentation was found. (Author/WR)
