This ‘examination oriented’ and ‘student oriented’ book is primarily designed to meet the examination needs of the students of B.Ed., B.T., L.T. and B.A. (Education). The treatment of the subject matter specially helps develop insight into the concepts and enables students to obtain maximum marks in the examination. The text has been supplemented with charts, diagrams, figures and tables to make the subject interesting and more comprehensible. The book aims at providing a comprehensive overview of educational psychology, in which the readers are introduced to the life and works of some fifty great educational psychologists. It is hoped that this chapter will enable the students to unlock the doors of the treasure-house of information, knowledge and wisdom enshrined in the thought and practices propounded by these masterminds.
The second edition also provides Thorndike’s multifactor theory of intelligence, Guilford’s theory of structure of intellect, and trait theories of personality. The book meets the needs of the regular as well as correspondence course students.
