Abstract

Context of this research project. The empirical studies that were carried out for this thesis were performed in the context of the project 'Inductive Learning',which was funded by the Dutch Organization for Scientific Research (NWO). The inductive learning project aimed at 'clarifying the major constraints of inductive knowledge development' (as stated in the research proposal). The constraints of inductive knowledge that were specifically studied in the project were prior knowledge, discovery skills, and meta-cognitive skills. These were separately explored in three research projects. The goal of the fourth project is to build a computational model of inductive learning, in which findings from the other three projects are incorporated. The studies that are reported here are concerned with the prior knowledge constraint, although a measure for discovery skills was later included in the study (see Chapters 6 and 7)
