RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN LEVELS OF MATURITY AND LEVELS OF UNDERSTANDING OF SELECTED CONCEPTS OF THE PARTICLE NATURE OF MATTER. TECHNICAL REPORT NO. 36.
CAREY, RUSSELL L.
INVESTIGATED WERE THE LEVELS OF UNDERSTANDING OF SELECTED CONCEPTS CONCERNING THE PARTICLE NATURE OF MATTER AND THE RELATIONSHIP OF THE STUDENTS' MATURITY AND CONCEPTUAL UNDERSTANDING. THE STUDENTS SAMPLED WERE OF HIGH AND AVERAGE IQ, AND IN GRADES 2-5. ALL GROUPS RECEIVED COMPARABLE INSTRUCTION. USED WERE ALTERNATE RESPONSE TAXONOMY-TYPE OBJECTIVE TESTS CONSISTING OF EQUAL NUMBERS OF QUESTIONS OF THREE TYPES--(1) KNOWLEDGE, (2) COMPREHENSION, AND (3) APPLICATION. CRITERIA FOR DETERMINING LEVELS OF UNDERSTANDING WERE (1) THE EARNED MEAN SCORE IS SIGNIFICANTLY DIFFERENT FROM GUESSING, AND (2) MORE THAN HALF OF THE MEMBERS EARN A SCORE OF 65 PER CENT OR HIGHER. BOTH GRADE LEVEL AND IQ WERE POSITIVELY CORRELATED WITH THE LEVEL OF ACHIEVEMENT IN (1) KNOWLEDGE, (2) COMPREHENSION, AND (3) APPLICATION. THE APPENDIX INCLUDES A LIST OF TEXTBOOKS THAT WERE ANALYZED FOR BASIC CONCEPTS IN THE STUDY, AND A BIBLIOGRAPHY. THE LESSONS AND TESTS WHICH WERE DEVELOPED ARE PUBLISHED IN A COMPANION VOLUME, "PRACTICAL PAPER NO. 1 OF THE CENTER FOR COGNITIVE LEARNING." (DH)
