Cognitive Style: Effects of Structure at Acquisition and Testing.
Kiewra, Kenneth A.; Frank, Bernard M.
Free recall and cued recognition performance were studied in 53 field independent and 55 field dependent undergraduate education majors who were with or without structure at the time of learning and at the time of recall. Results indicated that field dependent learners recalled more of the textual material when provided with structure during both acquisition and recall, as well as when structure was not provided at all. Conversely, field independent learners recalled more of the textual material when structure was provided only at either acquisition or recall. This pattern of interaction was also apparent for multiple choice test performance and for students' indicated preference of learning technique. (Author/GDC)
