A Survey of Investigations on Study

by Cecile White Flemming & Maxie N. Woodring - 1928

THE problem of improving conditions for study has received consideration from many angles. The varied attacks upon the problem have ranged from the mechanical administration of the class period to the development of objective tests for ascertaining pupils' habits of study, and to experimental investigations for evaluating teaching and study procedures. In the earlier efforts to improve conditions and methods of study there was a tendency to place too much emphasis upon the mechanics of the class period, particularly the length of the period and its organization into formal time units. Another tendency which still persists is the attempt to direct study without careful examination of the habits of work used by children and without an intelligent understanding of their needs. Moreover, where an attempt has been made to discover pupils' difficulties in study and provide remedial work, procedures have often been used before their validity has been fully established by experiment.
