Thorndike, Edward L.

Edward L. Thorndike - 1937
The first part of this article considered words outside the Thorndike 20,000 found in 4 ½ million words from books recommended for pupils in grades 3 to 8. Part II was concerned with the differences between the vocabulary of 120 juvenile books and the vocabulary of the 279 sources used in determining the Thorndike 20,000. Part III considers the frequency of occurrence of various words in books recommended for pupils in grades 3 to 8.

The facts presented so far indicate that unless some genius invents systematic exercises which would give fluent mastery of the mechanics of reading, extend world knowledge, give familiarity with the common constructions and idioms, and teach pupils to handle large units (so far as their native ability permits), the schools must rely on a large supply of supplementary reading interesting in content and easily understood. Unless it is interesting the pupil will not read widely and may acquire a distaste for reading which may be more harmful than lack of ability.

Edward L. Thorndike - 1928

The conference program culminated, on Thursday evening, February 22, in a dinner at the Hotel Commodore in honor or Dean Russell. Trustees, faculty, alumni, students, and friends of the College gathered to the number of over twelve hundred to give expression of their affection and respect for the Dean.

Edward L. Thorndike - 1922
The task of education is to make changes in human beings. We teachers and learners will spend our time this year to make ourselves and others different, thinking and feeling and acting in new and better ways. These classrooms, laboratories, and libraries are tools to help us change human nature for the better in respect to knowledge and taste and power.

Edward L. Thorndike - 1918
Whatever exists at all exists in some amount. To know it thoroughly involves knowing its quantity as well as its quality. Education is concerned with changes in human beings; a change is a difference between two conditions; each of these conditions is known to us only by the products produced by it—things made, words spoken, acts performed, and the like. To measure any of these products means to define its amount in some way so that competent persons will know how large it is, better than they would without measurement. To measure a product well means so to define its amount that competent persons will know how large it is, with some precision, and that this knowledge may be conveniently rcorded and used. This is the general Credo of those who, in the last decade, have been busy trying to extend and improve measure- ments of educational products.

Edward L. Thorndike - 1916
In the TEACHERS COLLEGE RECORD of September, 1914, there appeared a provisional scale for measuring word knowledge— the Thorndike Reading Scale A: Visual Vocabulary.

Edward L. Thorndike - 1915
In the TEACHERS COLLEGE RECORD for September, 1914, a provisional scale Alpha for measuring ability in paragraph reading was described. It is the purpose of the present report to present an improved and extended form of the scale, with standards whereby any teacher may determine the ability and progress of her pupils.

Edward L. Thorndike - 1910
In section 2 the fact was noted that a series of samples, a, b, c, d, etc., could be found such that when each was compared with the others was judged better than b as often as b was judged better than c, and so on. It was pointed out that, if the per cents of judgments of a-b, b-c, etc. are under 100, over 50, and equal, the samples a, b, c, etc., may be regarded as differing by equal steps, equal differences meaning equally often noticed differences.

William C. Prosser & Edward L. Thorndike - 1905
The importance of the subject-matter of Mr. Strayer's investigation needs no comment. The methods, being in some respects new in the literature of education, deserve some comment.

Clark Wissler & Edward L. Thorndike - 1901
Early in October, 1895, the following list of questions was sent out to a number of school superintendents in Indiana, with a request for written answers from the pupils under their charge.

Clark Wissler & Edward L. Thorndike - 1901
If we are to know what we are about when we are teaching English literature to boys and girls, we must get some rational account of what the aesthetic emotions are and what they do to us. Knowledge abdicates and opinion reigns if we ask just what the so-called aesthetic effects are and what difference they make in one's general character.

Clark Wissler & Edward L. Thorndike - 1901
Just how is manual skill acquired? Just what laws govern the growth of accurate and controlled movements? Are habits of our hands and eyes more permanent than habits of thought? Just what are the inborn tendencies that make children zealous in constructive hand work?...

Clark Wissler & Edward L. Thorndike - 1901
THE REACTION OF HAND WORK ON THE MIND Let us limit our question from the start to the direct contribution of a motor act to intellect and character, leaving one side the possible indirect influence due to the acquisition of technical skill, the preparation for a trade or profession, the relief from the harm that might result from idleness, etc.

Clark Wissler & Edward L. Thorndike - 1901
The attention of teachers of hand work has recently been called to the need of taking into account in planning courses of study the possible incapacity of young children to make fine finger movements. The question of the growth of motor ability in children is of broader reference than merely to the drawing, cutting, pasting, sewing and modelling in manual training courses.
