Dyer, James E.; Osborne, Edward W.
Journal of Agricultural Education, v37 n4 p36-43 1996
One group of Illinois secondary agriculture students was taught using a problem-solving approach (PSA), the other with a subject-matter approach (SMA). A problem-solving posttest and Group Embedded Figures Test showed significantly higher problem-solving ability in the PSA group. Field independent learners in the PSA group significantly increased their scores. There were no score changes for other learning styles or for the SMA group. (SK)
