AN INVESTIGATION INTO THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN CONCEPT ATTAINMENT AND LEVEL OF MATURITY.
STAUSS, NYLES G.
REPORTED IS AN INVESTIGATION OF CONCEPTS INCLUDED WITHIN A CONCEPTUAL SCHEME--THE BIOLOGICAL CELL--WHICH ARE MOST APPROPRIATE FOR STUDY BY CHILDREN IN GRADES 2-6. SUB-PROBLEMS WERE (1) TO DETERMINE THE RELATIVE LEVELS OF UNDERSTANDING AS INDICATED BY OBJECTIVE TEST SCORES, (2) TO DETERMINE WHETHER SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES EXIST BETWEEN PUPILS AT DIFFERENT GRADE LEVELS IN TERMS OF THEIR LEVEL OF UNDERSTANDING OF EACH CONCEPT, AND (3) TO DETERMINE THE LEVEL OF UNDERSTANDING WITHIN GRADES OF EACH CONCEPT AS INDICATED BY THE RELATIONSHIP OF TEST SCORES TO I.Q. AND AGE. THE GRADES IN WHICH SATISFACTORY MASTERY OF 11 SPECIFIC CONCEPTS ARE ATTAINED AT THE THREE SPECIFIC LEVELS OF UNDERSTANDING (KNOWLEDGE, COMPREHENSION, AND APPLICATION) ARE OUTLINED. IT WAS DETERMINED THAT MANY OF THE CONCEPTS COULD BE TAUGHT SUCCESSFULLY IN THE LOWER ELEMENTARY GRADES. HOWEVER, IT IS INDICATED THAT THE SELECTION OF CONCEPTS TO BE INCLUDED IN THE CURRICULUM SHOULD BE BASED ON THE LEVEL OF MASTERY DESIRED--KNOWLEDGE, COMPREHENSION, OR APPLICATION. THE INSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAM UTILIZED IN THE STUDY IS AVAILABLE AS PRACTICAL PAPER NO. 2 OF THE CENTER. (DS)
