Interaction Studies in University Education: A Search for TTI's in a Medical School (A Personal and Empirical Quest).
Sher, Abigail B.
The literature on medical education does not contain many studies directly concerning ATI (Aptitude-Treatment Interaction) or more broadly TTI (Trait-Treatment Interaction), in spite of the great many studies on the characteristics of medical students. Nevertheless, a project at Michigan State University was begun in which an entry profile of all entering medical students was compiled in the hope of maximizing the potential of both the students and the program. In the third year of the project the effort was expanded to study the interactions affecting two treatments judged important in their own right. While statistical significance was achieved, practical significance was not great enough. It is concluded that research in this area may not be of practical value for decision making in higher education. (WH)
