Psychological Models of Educational Performance: A Theoretical Synthesis of Constructs.
Haertel, Geneva D.; And Others
To help refine a model of educational productivity, this paper reviews eight theories that present holistic models of in-school learning. The holistic models, all published between 1963 and 1978, involve either individual learners or single learning tasks. The authors discuss each model in turn and then compare them. They note that the theories all include the concepts of immediate or "presage" conditions of learning, instructional processes, and educational outcomes, but that they differ over the variables to incorporate in each concept. Comparison of the eight theories with the model of educational productivity indicates that the latter covers the relevant variables for "presage" conditions and instructional processes and may be extended to predict any of the outcome variables.
