Abstract:

A two stage transfer paradigm was used to investigate three areas of rule learning Venn diagrams as transformational mediators ease of learning the complementary rules, biconditional and exclusive disjunction and effect of constructed versus multiple-choice Venn diagrams on transfer. The results indicated that the use of Venn diagrams in prior training significantly P .004 facilitated the learning of a new rule on the transfer task. However, no significant difference was found between constructed versus multiple-choice Venn diagrams, and no significant difference was found in the difficulty of learning the two complementary rules, biconditional and exclusive disjunction.
