Abstract : The study sought to determine whether memorization of rule statements before, during, or after instruction in rule application skills would facilitate the acquisition and/or retention of rule-governed behavior as compared to no rule statement memorization. A CAI program required high school students to learn to a pre-specified criterion the application of five APL rules.
