AN ANALYSIS BY CLASS SIZE AND SEX OF ORTHOGONALIZED INTEREST AND APTITUDE PREDICTORS IN RELATION TO HIGH SCHOOL CHEMISTRY ACHIEVEMENT CRITERIA.
JENSEN, JOHN ANDERS
THIS STUDY WAS DESIGNED TO PROVIDE CORRELATIONAL INFORMATION ABOUT RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN SELECTED APTITUDE AND INTEREST MEASURES AND CHEMISTRY ACHIEVEMENT. THE INVESTIGATION ALSO WAS CONCERNED WITH THE STABILITY OF THESE RELATIONSHIPS FOR TWO INSTRUCTIONAL METHODS AND FOR MALES AND FEMALES. SELECTED APTITUDE AND INTEREST MEASURES WERE STUDIED IN RELATION TO SCORES OBTAINED ON THE NEW YORK STATE REGENTS CHEMISTRY EXAMINATION AND ACHIEVEMENT ON A SERIES OF UNIT TESTS. EACH DATA SET WAS ORTHOGONALIZED USING PRINCIPAL COMPONENTS ANALYSIS AND THE VARIMAX METHOD OF FACTOR ROTATION. FACTOR SCORES WERE EXTRACTED FOR EACH SUBJECT ON EACH FACTOR. ANALYSES OF THE STRUCTURE OF RELATIONSHIPS AND THE RELATIVE CONTRIBUTION OF EACH FACTOR TO THE MULTIPLE OR CANONICAL CORRELATION COEFFICIENT WERE MADE. THE RESULTS OF THE STUDY INDICATED DIFFERENCES BETWEEN SUBJECTS IN CONVENTIONAL AND LARGE GROUP-SMALL GROUP CLASSES AND BETWEEN MALES AND FEMALES. THE RESULTS OF THE STUDY SUGGEST THAT THE EFFECTS OF INSTRUCTIONAL METHODS ARE PROBABLY MORE COMPLEX THAN IMPLIED BY MEAN DIFFERENCE TECHNIQUES NORMALLY USED IN ANALYSIS.
