Abstract

Conceptual ability, which is acquired through a learning process, is of interest to the behavioral scientist. Investigation of task and subject related variables in concept learning should lead to a better understanding of the cognitive processes. Moreover, such knowledge would have implications for educators in their methods of instruction even though results from the laboratory sometimes appear quite remote in their practical application to classroom behavior. The present study was concerned only with the rule learning aspects of conceptual behavior.
