A Comparison Between Self-Paced And Instructor-Paced Instructional Systems, Laura Lee Winter Aug 1973

A Comparison Between Self-Paced And Instructor-Paced Instructional Systems, Laura Lee Winter

Master's Theses

Two college level systems of instruction derived from basic behavioral principals were compared. Community college students enrolled in two sections of an introductory psychology course served as subjects. Students in one section experienced a self-paced system of instruction. Students in the second section went through the course under an instructor-paced system of instruction. Students in the self-paced section received higher course grades and performed better on unit quizzes. However, the final examination performance for the two groups was about the same. Suggestions for further research are given.

The Effect Of Temporal Separation On Performance Of A Discrimination Task, Stanley Dale Winter Aug 1973

The Effect Of Temporal Separation On Performance Of A Discrimination Task, Stanley Dale Winter

Master's Theses

Test trials, consisting of the selection of two color cubes from a set of three different color cubes, were presented with: (1) a 15-second time delay between trials, (2) a single-color selection task between trials, (3) an unrelated motor task between trials and (4) no interspersion between trials. All Ss performed the task with more accuracy when test trials were separated by the unrelated motor task. The lowest level of accuracy occurred when test trials were presented sequentially with no interspersion. Performance appeared to be facilitated by the temporal separation of test trials.
