Many people have helped in the preparation of this book. We would especially like to thank Lois B. Greenfield, Julia S. Hough and Joseph W. Martin for their editorial assistance. We are grateful to the Exxon Education Foundation for its support of this project and the Fund for Improvement of Post Secondary Education for its sponsorship of the Conference from which these papers were selected. The Fund and Exxon have been strong supporters of Cognitive Process Instruction and their vision has been critical to the early development of this field.
Finally we want to acknowledge the help of Frederick W. Byron Jr., Belinda Cajka, Robert L. Gray, Jane Luzbetak, Jim Nix, Ron Narode and Susan White.
