The fundamentals of learning by Edward L Thorndike( Book )

33 editions published between 1932 and 1971 in English and Undetermined and held by 678 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume reports investigations covering a period of three years, dealing with the fundamental facts and forces in learning. It was the author's original purpose to work at certain basic problems until satisfactory solutions were reached; and in general he has done so. But the results suggested certain new problems of such great importance that he has thought it wise to study these also, even without expectation of attaining a final settlement of them. As an indirect consequence of this, one important problem in his original set, that of the relation of the formation of conditional reflexes to associative shifting of the ordinary sort, has been treated only very cursorily".

The principles of teaching : based on psychology by Edward L Thorndike( Book )

59 editions published between 1906 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 669 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The aim of this book is to make the study of teaching scientific and practical--scientific in the sense of dealing with verifiable facts rather than attractive opinions, practical in the sense of giving knowledge and power that will make a difference in the actual work of teaching. It follows the example of teaching upon the laws of psychology; it makes use of modern scientific psychology; it seeks to make use also of direct studies of teaching itself which have been made by qualified experts; it is arranged as a manual to guide the student in applying principles himself rather than as a series of discussions to be thought out or, more often, to be simply absorbed."--Preface
The measurement of intelligence by Edward L Thorndike( Book )

32 editions published between 1910 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 623 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume represents the fruits of three years of investigation (from July 1, 1922, to July 1, 1925) by the Division of Psychology of the Institute of Educational Research. It attempts to answer the essential questions concerning the nature and meaning of the measurement of a mental fact in the sample case of intelligence, or rather of a defined segment thereof. Its conclusions, in so far as they are warranted, should become the basis of sound practice in the construction and calibration of scales for use in mental measurement. According to them, the present theory and practice of measurement of mental abilities are justified to a remarkable degree in certain respects, but in others should be almost recreated"--Preface.

Educational psychology; briefer course by Edward L Thorndike( Book )

59 editions published between 1910 and 2010 in English and held by 603 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Our knowledge of human instincts and capacities, of the processes of learning and remembering, of mental work and fatigue, and of individual differences and their causes has been much increased in the past score of years. This knowledge I have organized for advanced students in separate volumes on "The Original Nature of Man," "The Psychology of Learning," "Work and Fatigue and Individual Differences." The current book represents a simpler treatment of the more fundamental subject matter of these volumes, organized as a text-book in Educational Psychology for students in colleges and normal schools. Its method is that of straightforward and systematic presentation of principles. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2004 APA, all rights reserved)
Educational psychology by Edward L Thorndike( Book )

52 editions published between 1903 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 571 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The knowledge of human nature which psychology offers to students of educational theory and practice may be roughly divided into four parts. A body of general knowledge about instincts, habits, memory, attention, interests, reasoning, et cetera, finds place in the ordinary textbooks. Detailed descriptions of the thoughts, feelings and conduct of children at different ages are available in the literature of child study. Particular facts which bear upon this or that school subject or method of teaching may be gleaned from researches upon perception, association, practice, fatigue and other topics. Finally there is an even more incoherent mass of facts about the influence of inheritance, environment and general mental development, the beginnings of what we may call a general dynamic psychology, which are relevant to many of the broader questions of education. It is the aim of this book to put this last group of facts at the service of students. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2004 APA, all rights reserved)

The elements of psychology by Edward L Thorndike( Book )

55 editions published between 1893 and 2014 in English and held by 514 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The aim of this book is to help students to learn the general principles of psychology. Those facts which can most profitably be made the subject matter of a course in general psychology are presented with an abundance of concrete illustrations, experiments, exercises and questions, by which the student may secure real rather than verbal conceptions and may test, apply and make permanent his knowledge"--Préf.

Comparative psychology by Calvin P Stone( Book )

42 editions published between 1934 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 498 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During the last eight years, an enormous amount of work has been completed in the field of Comparative Psychology. While the results of this work have been published in the journals, they are not generally available in any usable form. It was with a view to making them easily accessible to students that this second edition has been prepared. Through cooperative efforts, singularly free from the secretive reserve sometimes found among specialists, a book more representative of Comparative Psychology as it is today has been obtained than could reasonably be expected from the hand of a single contributor in this varied and ever-expanding field. Breadth of view and wealth of subject matter more than compensate for a certain lack of unification inevitably present in a work of this kind. This book examines comparative psychology and looks specifically at animal psychology, history, maturation, motivation, individual differences, social behavior, and more."

An introduction to the theory of mental and social measurements by Edward L Thorndike( Book )

64 editions published between 1904 and 2012 in English and held by 483 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It is the aim of this book to introduce students to the theory of mental measurements and to provide them with such knowledge and practice as may assist them to follow critically quantitative evidence and argument and to make their own researches exact and logical. Only the most general principles are outlined, the special methods appropriate to each of the mental sciences being better left for separate treatment. If the general problems of mental measurement are realized and the methods at hand for dealing with variable quantities are mastered, the student will find no difficulty in acquiring the special information and technique involved in the quantitative aspect of his special science. This book has been revised, and the greater part of it entirely rewritten, to introduce the students to the literature on mental and social measurements which is now available. In general, the treatment is made much clearer and somewhat more elementary"--Pref. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2005 APA, all rights reserved)
