Conceptual Learning and the Self-Concept.
Meinke, Dean L.
Using subjects classified on the basis of positive and less positive self-concepts, this study investigates the effects of instructions, a principle, and practice with four concept-attainment problems on the efficiency of the attainment of concepts among subjects. The findings indicate the subjects with more positive self-concepts attain abstract concepts significantly more efficiently than lower self-concept subjects. This study also replicates the findings of prior studies by supporting the effectiveness of manipulating instructions to facilitate concept learning. These findings and their implications are discussed. (SJL)
