Abstract : The effectiveness of increased repetition of major points in three hours of instruction in elementary electricity was evaluated in the Wheel Vehicle Mechanic Course at Fort Jackson. Achievement was measured with multiple choice test items given in regular course examinations two days and 24 days following the instruction. The experimental instruction (increased repetition) improved achievement at both testing times. More low aptitude students instructed by the experimental method made passing scores on the test items at both testing times. It is recommended that repetition of major points be increased in classroom instruction. (Author)
