Abstract : Building upon an earlier collection of social science generalizations and the development of a taxonomic retrieval system, the study has implemented an information retrieval (IR) system within a computer aided instruction system, developed a social simulation game, constructed an attitude scale to appraise three affective factors, within the game and IR learning tasks, and a studied teachers' inquiry behavior. An experiment was designed and executed within the game and IR system to further examine the outcomes of the attitude scale and to examine human inquiry behavior more closely. (Author)
