Three research studies conducted for the dual purpose of testing the effectiveness of certain teaching methods in the learning of elementary school pupils and of contributing to the theory of how learning proceeds. Ms. Anderson compared two methods of instruction in fourth-grade arithmetic--the teaching of meaningful generalizations and drill. Miss Swenson dealt with the effect of teaching meaningful generalizations upon retroactive inhibition and transfer of training. Mr. Stacey tested Throndike’s Law of Effect, using five different methods of instruction in five sixth-grade classes.
