Abstract : The research in this report was concerned with a student tutorial method of instruction and the effects of the distribution (spacing or massing) of explanation of incorrect student responses on cognitive and attitudinal variables. The experimental design was a 3 x 2 x 3 factorial with seven observations per cell. Three types of programmed instruction treatment materials were employed reflecting the differential placement of the high-difficulty frames. Version 1 consisted of twenty-one difficult 'integration' frames being placed every eighth or ninth frame. Version 2 was developed with these frames massed together at the conclusion of Units 1 and 2, ten per unit. Version 3 consisted of experimental frames being presented at the end of Unit 2. (Author)
