Summary

To test the hypothesis that learning depends on the influence and interaction of three primary variables--instruction, learner aptitude, and learning environment--an explanatory model was tested during the 1967-68 school year in an experiment conducted with the cooperation of a simple random sample of 56 teachers drawn from the National Science Teachers Association of 17,000 secondary physics teachers. A number of pre- and posttests were administered to all 56 classes, with the experimental group of teachers using the Harvard Physics Project materials and the control group of teachers using their regular course materials. Findings of the study indicate the importance of recognizing not only instruction but also aptitude and learning environment as variables significantly affecting learning. (JK)
