An Exploration of Specific Transfer Properties of Different Instructional Sequences Designed for Use in Teaching Selected Principles of Conditional Logic.
Tripp, Laurence I.; And Others
This investigation was designed to ascertain whether students could transfer concepts related to specific rules of conditional logic to two designated areas. Specifically, the first type of transfer investigated was concerned with the ability of students to judge verbal simple deductive arguments written with suggestive content after instruction on judging the same types of arguments written with nonsuggestive content. The types of arguments used in this test of transfer dealt with the contrapositive, converse, and transitive principles of conditional logic. The second type of transfer investigated was the ability of students to judge verbal simple deductive arguments written with familiar content which were examples of the principle of inversion, after instruction only on the principles of contraposition, conversion, and transitivity.
