Educational psychology by Lee J Cronbach( Book )

"The last decade has seen important changes of emphasis within general psychology that make its theories more pertinent to education. Ten years ago the dominant psychology was that of Hull and his followers. Their emphasis on stimulus-response connections, reduction of primary drives, and reinforcement, while useful for explaining the learning of single tasks in the laboratory, seemed not to be very enlightening to the educator. Today the general psychologist is as concerned as the educator with meanings. Harlow demonstrates how long-continued experience facilitates learning in monkeys. Piaget and Inhelder demonstrate the emergence of disciplined thought from the child's long years of trial and error. Skinner proposes to design learning sequences such that each success on one question makes the next question more meaningful. Underwood shows that forgetting is primarily the result of interference from prior associations. Osgood, Kendler, and others advance from Hull to a theory of mediated learning. At the same time, motivational theory has broadened to recognize that mastery and understanding of the environment seems to be a basic source of satisfaction. White's paper (1959) on the need for "competence" climaxes a substantial series of advances on this front which have included Harlow's observations on manipulation and the work of McClelland and others on achievement motivation. The same decade has seen vigorous re-examination of the purposes and quality of American education. The first great result was a marked extension of testing and counseling, of special programs for the talented and the handicapped, and, in the elementary school, of more flexible administrative arrangements for teaching. These efforts put well-established psychological knowledge to use. The second great result has been radical curriculum revision. In science and mathematics where this work has been carried furthest, the new curricula emphasize not the mastery of facts and calculations but the understanding of scientific and mathematical reasoning. The teacher is called upon to promote understanding and curiosity, and to capitalize upon the pupil's intuitions and discoveries. Cognitive development thus has become the central aim in educational reform just at the time when substantial psychological knowledge about these processes has become available. To emphasize cognitive development in this edition required no radical change of viewpoint, since the first edition made meaning the first principle of learning. The chapters dealing with intellectual development and the attainment of concepts have been augmented to deal with the theory of Piaget and such topics as "learning by discovery" and "programed instruction." In contemporary experimentation and theory the psychology of learning and the psychology of development are inseparable. Even developments once considered to be "purely physiological" are now known to depend on experience. The teacher cannot gain a full understanding of the pupil unless every bit of learning is seen in its developmental context. I believe that it is a mistake to divide educational psychology for teachers into separate courses in "development" and "learning." In the first edition learning and development were interwoven; I hope that in this revision the treatment has become truly integrated"--Preface.

Designing evaluations of educational and social programs by Lee J Cronbach( Book )

29 editions published between 1982 and 1994 in English and held by 746 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Designing an evaluation is rather an art, as each must be designed according to its appropriateness to the situation being evaluated. The advantages of each feature of the design must be balanced against any sacrifices each of these choices entail. Designers must plan for the allocation of investigative resources, selecting investigative questions that are most apt, and be aware of both practical and political considerations. This volume includes both new approaches to the design of educational evaluations, and discusses the pros and cons of frequently used design concepts

From among approximately 175 applicants, 40 persons were selected to participate in a conference to discuss current research in educational learning, including both classroom and laboratory studies. The conference was organized into four groups--(1) in group a, the emphasis was on learning, instruction, and pupil characteristics, with particular reference to the language arts, (2) in group b, the behavioral analysis of concept formation and transfer with implications for programed instruction and computers in educational research were stressed, (3) in group c, the focus was on sociocultural and organizational determinants of student motivation, (4) in group d, the motivational determinants of achievement-oriented behavior were highlighted. Participants were specialists in educational psychology, psychology, or sociology, plus a few from other fields. The report presents the selection of participant procedures, preconference and conference activities, a log of conference activities, and a list of participants. (Jc)
Research Conference on Learning and the Educational Process, at Stanford University, June 21-July 30, 1965 by Richard C Atkinson( Book )

3 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A research training conference on learning was held for 37 psychologists and educational researchers. The 6-week conference centered its activities on such topics as language learning, computer simulation, instructional procedures design, attitude and personality development, and curriculum evaluation. Lectures and talks were offered by instructors and visiting consultants. Topics discussed included (1) language learning, (2) computer simulation of intellectual processes, (3) design of instructional procedures and experimentation on learning, (4) the nature of aptitude, attitude development and change, (5) personality development in college, and (6) curriculum evaluation. One of the conclusions drawn was that a general acquaintance with significant current work was achieved. Development of competence in depth, however, was not as successful. Identification of areas of study and motivation to do research were indicated as accomplishments of the conference. (Rs)
