Scott, Joseph A.
The lessons and test which comprise this document were used in two experiments concerning the effects of discovery and expository modes of presentation on retention and transfer. The methodology and results of the experiments are briefly summarized. Eight lessons are included: (1) two introductory lessons; (2) three lessons in the expository mode, one on triangles and two on quadrilaterals; and (3) three lessons in the discovery mode, one on triangles and two on quadrilaterals. Also included is a 28-item multiple-choice test dealing with concepts presented in the lessons on quadrilaterals. (Author/DT)
