Not illustrated. 1916 edition. Excerpt: ...the figures are 23.90 and 23.80, respectively. Thus, the relative gain of the training group is 24.87 per cent, and of the control group 11.5 per cent. This is of interest, as it leaves a residual gain for the training group of 13.37 per cent. The solution of Test 6, however, involves five possible functions, and the general results are complicated by the possible contributions of reasoning functions, like organization, systematic method or ideational or perceptual processes. Table E gives the specific data that are needed at this point; that is, the number of words formed by each of the five psychological methods. Using now the data for words formed by visual manipulation alone, we find that the training group gains 22.8 per cent of its initial efficiency, and the control group 15.4 per cent--a residual gain for the training group of 7.4 per cent. Test 6, then, at least to a small extent, reinforces the results obtained from Tests 1 and 2, namely, that the training group shows a progressively greater gain over the control group as one proceeds from the non-geometrical field of mental manipulation to the strictly geometrical field. 2. Determination of Relative Gains Made by Training and Control Groups. Thus far there has been considered in the tabulations the entire number of subjects in the two groups. It has been found that there is a difference in the amount of work done by the two groups in their initial performances; that this difference is constantly in favor of the training group, (most pertinent to the problems of this investigation) that, regardless of the greater initial efficiency of the training group, the gain of the training group is greater in every test than is that of the control group. So much have the tables of initial and...show more
