Michaels, James W. – Journal of Educational Psychology, 1978
To merge the reinforcement and competition approaches and to test the relative efficacy of reward structures, group vs individual rewarding was paired with three amounts of monetary reward for performance. The math performance of college females was consistent with the differential rewarding hypotheses, whereas males were consistent with a…

Coll, Joan H.; And Others – Journal of the American Society for Information Science, 1993
Discussion of the design of computer menus focuses on two experiments that examined task time across several orderings of menu lists. Findings are described that demonstrated that good physical layout in screen design is not sufficient without good conceptual layout. The size of menu lists for maximizing efficiency is considered. (Contains 17…

Falmagne, Rachel Joffe; And Others – 1981
This document focuses on a series of studies that viewed aspects of conditional reasoning. The investigations were concerned with the processes children use to acquire patterns of deductive inference and logical relationships pertaining to propositional reasoning. The first experiment, involving 96 children each in grades 2 and 5, investigated the…

Wilson, Audrey – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1992
Reports a study to compare the performance of Australian university students on chemistry questions delivered in two different formats: multiple choice and grid. Concluded that students encounter more difficulties with questions presented in the grid format and that grid questions demand a deeper understanding of the topic. (MDH)
