5 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in Italian and held by 24 libraries worldwide
Per quali motivi alcuni studenti si sentono motivati a conseguire buoni risultati mentre altri mostrano disinteresse? Gli autori propongono una metodologia suggestiva - la cosiddetta strategia degli incentivi equi - per ribaltare le strutture motivazionali negative. Questo metodo definisce le condizioni per una equità motivazionale, in cui gli incentivi siano costruttivi, mirati all'apprendimento, alla curiosità intellettuale e riducano al minimo l'aspetto competitivo del sistema di votazione

Promoting Creative Thinking in the Classroom--the Process of CurriculumDevelopment by Martin V Covington( Book )
2 editions published in 1967 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
A general, problem-solving program (gpsp), consisting of 16 creative problems for the fifth and sixth grade levels presented in a self-instructional linear format, was developed as a prototype of instructional linear materials on creative problem solving. Throughout the series of lessons, a story line is maintained to give the reader a set of identification models. It gradually introduces him to the process of becoming a more effective thinker. In several studies, 267 fifth and sixth grade students were given the gpsp while 214 fifth graders served as controls. All students were pretested and received modified traditional problem solving tests. The minnesota test of creative thinking served as the criterion test battery. Highly consistent results indicate that instructed students obtain superior scores on all indices of problem solving and creative thinking. Follow-up studies proved less conclusive. A fundamental question is whether programs designed to promote creative thinking are necessary. Future research will involve expansion of the gpsp and the development of new units on understanding and creative innovation. Research is also being directed toward adapting gpsp for computer presentation. This paper is to be included in N.J. klauemeier (ed.), "contemporary research of significance to education," university of wisconsin, in press. (Pr)

The Affective Components of Productive Thinking, Strategies of Researchand Assessment by Martin V Covington( Book )
1 edition published in 1968 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
New directions for research may more clearly reveal the nature of the relationship between affective variables and intellectual performance. One affective component should not be singled out for measurement. Rather, a pattern of dispositions should be determined as a unit of prediction of effective performance. Various coping styles should be fractionated into more discrete and identifiable mental operations carried out by the individual. The student's ability to effectively coordinate and deploy the diverse cognitive strategies associated with various coping styles can then be tested. Tests which reflect such a "managerial" capacity are described. Oversimplification can also be avoided by varying the kinds of output measures used. Data on tests developed to tap various facets of the problem-solving act are presented as proof that attitudinal variables are related to performance in a complex manner depending, in part, on the kind of output measures employed. Described are attitudes toward the self as a problem-solver which may influence the act of problem-solving. An assessment device explores the relationships between the problem-solving act and self-appraisal of worth as an effective thinker. This speech was presented at the american educational research association convention, chicago, illinois, february, 1968. (ps)
A Childhood Attitude Inventory for Problem Solving by Martin V Covington( Book )
in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
This paper describes a 60-item group administered paper-pencil attitude inventory comprised of two scales, one assessing the child's beliefs about the nature of the problem-solving process (scale I) and the other assessing the child's self-confidence in undertaking probelm-solving activities (scale ii). Data from 325 fifth-grade and sixth-grade students are reported. Test-retest reliability over a five-week interval averaged .69 for scale I and .65 for scale ii. Boys tend to rate themselves slightly higher than do girls in their ability to deal successfully with problem-solving situations, whereas there are no sex differences regarding beliefs about the nature of problem solving.
