Studies of Verbal Problem Solving: II. Prediction of Performance from Sentence-Processing Scores. Technical Report No. 87.
Bond, Nicholas A.; And Others
This study explores the extent to which scores on four separate complex reasoning solution processes could predict performance on difficult problems. Definitions are provided for the four processes--intra-sentence processing, inter-sentence processing, ordering, and collecting--and previous work done in the field is outlined. The procedures used in obtaining scores for the four processes and the results of the initial experiment are discussed. The description of a training demonstration, designed to teach the skills needed in complex problem solving, includes the results of this exercise. A discussion of the success of the training procedure, a list of references, and typical sentence-inference sheets are also provided. (RAO)
