Carroll’s Model of School Learning
Carroll’s model of school learning specifies the distinctive roles of generalized abilities and task-specific aptitudes in determining the effects of instruction on learning. The degree of learning effectiveness is defined as a function of the time needed for learning and the time actually spent for learning. Both variables, in turn, are dependent on other internal and external variables, such as the learner’s general intelligence and the quality of instruction.
