An Investigation of College Students' Academic Achievement Based on their Piagetian Cognitive Level and ACT Scores.
Taylor, Beverly W.; Dunbar, Ann M.
The purpose of this study was to determine if academic achievement differed among the Piagetian cognitive levels of teacher education students and if these differences interacted with sex, age, classification (e.g., freshmen, sophomores), or ACT scores. Sample for the study consisted of 670 students enrolled in a developmental psychology class. The results indicated that Piagetian scores differed according to sex and ACT scores but not classification or age; the four types of achievement (quizzes, projects, test, and total) differed according to Piagetian scores, sex, and ACT scores; all types of achievement except quizzes differed according to classification; and age was not related to achievement in any way.
