A Study of the Ability of Primary School Children to Generalize Behavioral Competencies Acquired in Science to Other Content Settings.
Carter, Heather Lilian
Students in grades 1-4 who had used the "Science--A Process Approach" were tested by individually administering the tasks of the "Science Process Instrument." Tasks to assess the level of the same skills in social studies, fine arts, and language arts were then administered. Data analysis showed that there was a similar ordering among students with respect to science and other subject areas, and that students had similar levels of competency in each of the skills in each of the subject-matter areas. A significant correlation was found between a student's ability to generalize the skills and his flexibility of closure (a cognitive style measured by Karp's "Children's Embedded Figures Test").
