Di Vesta, Francis J.; Peverly, Stephen T.
Journal of Educational Psychology, v76 n1 p108-19 Feb 1984
Using 198 college students, this study investigated the effects on performance of four variables in a concept-learning task. The variables were (1) passive and active learning; (2) contextual specificity and variability; (3) rule-examples sequences; and (4) near and far transfers as critical outcomes. Results are discussed in terms of the contextualist model. (BS)
