Reversal and Nonreversal Shifts in Concept Learning in Three Levels of Retardates

Scurlock, Cheryl Faye 06 1900 (has links)
The primary objective of this experiment is to investigate the transition from single unit to mediation control in retardates and to compare their responses with those made by nursery, kindergarten and grammar school children. By utilizing three MA levels of retarded subjects, this transition point may be more specifically demonstrated.

Evidence for serial learning of multiple cues in concept identification.

Clement, Marc A. 01 January 1972 (has links)
The fact that some subjects learn both relevant dimensions in a relevant redundant cue concept identification problem has been offered in sudport of the use of a multiple look strategy by subjects. The present study shows that subjects are «o3 i > assarily using a multiple look strategy but rather may be using a one-look strategy to solve the problem. This was shown by asking one group of subjects to stop responding and state their solution to the problem when they felt that they had solved the problem. They then continued responding until they hac completed a fairly large number of consecutive correct responses. At this point they were again quizzed on their solution. A total of 46 subjects were run in this group and of this number, 19 were identified as two cue learners at the end of the criterion run. Of these 19 two cue learners only 5 had learned about the two relevant cues at the solution trial. These results were compared with a group of subjects who solved the problem without being stopped. Of the H6 subjects run in this group 18 were classified as two cue learners at the end of the criterion run. The results are discussed in terms of supporting a one-look interpretation of concept identification learning.
