Interaction Between Structure of Intellect Factors and Two Methods of Presenting Concepts of Logic.
Eastman, Phillip; Behr, Merlyn
This paper reports a study which attempted to generalize earlier results obtained by Eastman to another mathematical content area. Two hundred eight ninth-grade algebra students were randomly assigned to one of the two treatments. The figural-inductive treatment presented concepts of logic through the use of Euler diagrams in an inductive mode; the symbolic-deductive mode presented the same concepts in a symbolic and deductive mode. Aptitudes of subjects were measured using tests of necessary arithmetical operations, abstract reasoning, inference, and figure classification. After treatment, achievement was measured using an experimenter-constructed test. A retention test (parallel to the posttest) was administered one week later. The data from criterion measures of learning and retention did not support the hypothesis of a significant Aptitude Treatment Interaction (ATI) between selected aptitude measures and the two treatment modes. Discussion of four apparent and significant problems in the area of ATI research is presented. (Author/SD)
