Adult interests by Edward L Thorndike( Book )
1 edition published in 1935 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book by Dr. Thorndike and his coworkers is a sequel to the volume entitled "Adult Learning" and performs a similar service for anybody who is interested in improving his own interests or those of other in adult years. This book states the main results of experiments carried out in 1931 to 1934 on changes in the intensity of interests with age, on the possibility of modifying and improving interests in adult years, and on means and methods of doing this effectively. Facts are also presented concerning individual differences in interests among adults, and differences between old and young. There are practical discussions of the means and methods desirable in the teaching of adults"--Jacket. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2014 APA, all rights reserved)
The measurement of intelligence by Edward L Thorndike( Book )
1 edition published in 1925 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
"This volume represents the fruits of three years of investigation (from July 1, 1922, to July 1, 1925) by the Division of Psychology of the Institute of Educational Research. It attempts to answer the essential questions concerning the nature and meaning of the measurement of a mental fact in the sample case of intelligence, or rather of a defined segment thereof. Its conclusions, in so far as they are warranted, should become the basis of sound practice in the construction and calibration of scales for use in mental measurement. According to them, the present theory and practice of measurement of mental abilities are justified to a remarkable degree in certain respects, but in others should be almost recreated"--Preface.

The fundamentals of learning by Edward L Thorndike( Book )
1 edition published in 1971 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
"This volume reports investigations covering a period of three years, dealing with the fundamental facts and forces in learning. It was the author's original purpose to work at certain basic problems until satisfactory solutions were reached; and in general he has done so. But the results suggested certain new problems of such great importance that he has thought it wise to study these also, even without expectation of attaining a final settlement of them. As an indirect consequence of this, one important problem in his original set, that of the relation of the formation of conditional reflexes to associative shifting of the ordinary sort, has been treated only very cursorily".
