Recall of Nonsense Syllables of Normal and Learning Disabled Adolescents by Equating Learning Through Mastery.
Glaser, Mark L.
The study compared 46 normal and learning disabled eighth graders as to their retention of nonsense syllables once mastery learning occurred. Groups were equated by intelligence, age, and sex and were presented ten nonsense syllables to be remembered. Each group studied the material until a predetermined percentage of the words could be recalled. They were then asked to reproduce the information 24 hours, 48 hours, and 7 days later. It was concluded that both groups remembered a similar percentage of material. (Author/SBH)
