Atwood, Ronald K.; Stevens, J. Truman – School Science and Mathematics, 1976

Investigates relationships between question level, response level, and lapse time for a total of 238 questions asked by student teachers on the junior high and senior high levels. Classroom interactions were taped and questions dichotomized into memory (knowledge) and above memory (comprehension, application, analysis, synthesis, evaluation)…
