The Development of a Cognitive Process Based Learning Strategies Questionnaire.
Long, Gary; And Others
The study involving 112 deaf undergraduate students at the National Technical Institute for the Deaf (NTID) was designed to review recent educational and psychological literature relating to learning strategy knowledge and use, to determine which cognitive strategies might be most effective for learners, and to pilot a questionnaire for assessing strategy use among deaf students. Through the review of educational and psychological literature, four areas (imagery, questioning, paraphrasing, and understanding concept relationships) were identified as areas in which training students processing strategies may benefit comprehension and retention. By developing sets of items, administering them to NTID students, and facotr analyzing responses, nine scales were identified that measure student's strategies for processing instructional material. The nine Learning Strategy Questionnaire scales are: Study Flexibility, Imagery, Application, Creative Elaboration, Relationships, Understanding, Sign Language and Reinforcement, Ease of Studying, and Selection/Retention. Tables with statistical data are appended. (Author/SB)
