Type of Post-Question and Accuracy of Concept Classification in Learning from Prose.
Gagne', Ellen D.; And Others
College students (n=192) read two 1-1/2 page passages on the concepts of autism and trochaic meter. After reading, four independent groups answered questions requiring either a summary, the generation of a new example of the concept, a listing of the critical attributes of the concept, or the identification of a new example. All groups received feedback, and a control group received feedback but no post-question. Alternate forms of a test of concept classification were given one day and one week after reading. The identification post-question group showed greater accuracy in the classification of new examples of the autism concept than did the control group after one day, but no groups differed after one week.
