Rule Acquisition Design Strategy Variables: Degree of Instance Divergence, Sequence, and Instance Analysis
Tennyson, Robert D.; Tennyson, Carol L.
Journal of Educational Psychology, 67, 6, 852-9, Dec 75

Findings indicated: 1) the degree of divergence between instances showed that contrasting, not matching, features resulted in better performance; and 2) two contextually similar rules learned simultaneously, not successfully, resulted in superior performance.
