Abstract:

The programmed case method Dailey, 1966 is explored and extended as a technique for measuring interference with interpersonal learning defined as prejudice. Black and white participants both low and high SES judged 4 low-SES and 4 high-SES programmed cases described as black or white. Learning interference effects were found in the cases as functions of both race and SES. The implications of the results for mechanisms of prejudice and for the use of the programmed case in related research are discussed. Author
