THE DEVELOPMENT OF A TEST OF SCIENTIFIC INQUIRY, USING THE TAB FORMAT, AND AN ANALYSIS OF ITS RELATIONSHIP TO SELECTED STUDENT BEHAVIORS AND ABILITIES.
JONES, HOWARD LEON
A MODEL OF INQUIRY WAS DESIGNED AND A TEST WAS DEVELOPED TO SAMPLE INQUIRY BEHAVIORS OF ELEMENTARY SCHOOL STUDENTS. RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN PROFICIENCY ON THIS TEST AND SELECTED STUDENT BEHAVIORS AND ABILITIES WERE ANALYZED. THE TEST WAS DEVELOPED TO ASSESS INQUIRY BEHAVIORS OF SEARCHING, DATA PROCESSING, VERIFYING, DISCOVERING, ASSIMILATING, AND ACCOMMODATING. THE SUBJECTS TESTED WITH THE TAB SCIENCE TEST WERE 2,519 FOURTH, FIFTH, AND SIXTH GRADE STUDENTS IN SIX TEXAS SCHOOLS. RESULTS OF THE ANALYSIS INDICATED POSITIVE RELATIONSHIP (1) BETWEEN TAB SCIENCE TEST SCORES AND STUDENT INQUIRY BEHAVIORS, (2) BETWEEN TAB SCIENCE TEST SCORES AND TEACHERS' RATINGS OF STUDENTS, AND (3) BETWEEN INTERFORM TAB SCIENCE TEST SCORES. NO SIGNIFICANT RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN TESTED INTELLIGENCE AND THE TAB SCIENCE TEST WAS INDICATED.
