The Effect of Elaboration on the Acquisition of Conceptual Problem-Solving Skills from Prose.
Hamilton, Richard
Journal of Experimental Education, v59 n1 p5-17 Fall 1990
Effects of author-generated and learner-generated elaborations on subjects' abilities to recall, classify, and apply conceptual knowledge were compared for 94 college undergraduates studying a passage on psychological concepts. Author-generated elaborations and specific elaboration activities produced superior effects in comparison with learner-generated and varied elaboration activities, respectively. (SLD)
