Familiarity with Content and Syllogistic Reasoning.
Mast, Terrill A.; And Others
Forty-four education and 44 dental students were administered a 30-item syllogism test containing five syllogic forms six times repeated in three different content forms--technical dental terms, common dental terms, and content-free (letters). Data were analyzed using a two-factor with repeated measures on one factor design. It was found that dental students did not score differently than education students. However, content-free syllogisms were significantly less difficult to solve than technical or common content syllogisms. There were no interaction effects between subject group and content type.
