Strategies and Classification Learning.
Medin, Douglas L.; Smith, Edward E.
Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Learning and Memory, v7 n4 p241-53 Jul 1981
How strategies affect learning of categories that lack necessary and sufficient attributes is explored. The authors propose that strategy variations induced by instructions affect only the amount of information represented about attributes, not processes operating on representations. An experiment required subjects to classify schematic faces into two categories. (Author/RD)
