Field dependence and its relationship to simultaneous and sequential processing

Grepp, Sandra Seals January 1986 (has links)
The primary purpose of this study was to determine if relationships exist among the constructs of field dependence, simultaneous processing and sequential processing. The interrelationships among these constructs and ability and achievement were also explored. Regression and discriminant analyses, as well as t-tests were used in the statistical treatment of the data.The 56 student subjects, equally divided by sex, were randomly selected from sixth-grade classrooms in a suburban school corporation in central Indiana. The GEFT and the Kaufman Assessment Battery for Children (K-ABC) were administered. Results from the Comprehensive Test of Basic Skills (CTBS) and the Test of Cognitive Skills (TCS) were obtained from schoolpersonnel. Overall, there were higher correlations among individual and among group tests than were foundbetween the two types of tests. The GEFT, whether treated as a continuous or categorical variable, was found to correlate significantly with group-administered tests of ability and achievement. The TCS and the CTBS were also found to be significantly related. Intercorrelations among selected Global Scales of the K-ABC were significant. There were no significant zero-order correlations between the K-ABC processing scales and the TCS. There were significant correlations between the K-ABC Achievement measure and group-administered tests of both ability and achievement. While the Achievement Scale of the K-ABC had a significant positive relationship with the GEFT, results of a t-test revealed no significant difference between the performance of field dependent and field independent subjects on the Achievement Scale. A significant positive relationship was found between the GEFT and the Simultaneous Processing Scale as well as the Mental Processing Composite. However, in a regression analysis the principal component of the linear composite was the Simultaneous Scale.

Training children on multiplicative classification

Heemskerk, Antonius Jacobus January 1972 (has links)
Twenty-one Ss received a matrix training task which made cognitive demands similar to the reclassification test task and 17 Ss received WISC Block Design training which was not cognitively related to the test task. Results supported the hypothesis that cognitively related training significantly improves reclassification performance, and that non-cognitively related training does not. Neither the Matrix training group, nor the Block Design training group generalized to a second reclassification task. The improvement of some Ss and not others is explained as the result of the variance in the competence and performance level of cognitive structures / Arts, Faculty of / Psychology, Department of / Graduate

The development of cognitive skills in the preschool child

Bauslaugh, Ann January 1975 (has links)
The study attempted to evaluate the levels of cognitive skills of kindergarten children attending day care, and the apparent growth of cognitive skills over a period of time, using published tests as instruments of measurement. An informal evaluation of the tests was made. The review of literature presented three points of view regarding approaches to the development of cognitive skills. An analysis of the data, using t-tests, was carried out and conclusions were stated. Implications of the study were made, and questions concerning the growth of cognitive skills of kindergarten children attending day care centres were raised. / Education, Faculty of / Graduate
