Higher Level Verbal Response and Higher Level Test Response of Biology Students and Their Relationship to Questioning by Biology Student Teachers.
Becker, Catherine A.
The purpose of this study was to determine whether there was a significant difference in the verbal responses and test responses of high school biology students as a result of training in higher level questioning of student teachers. The sample included two groups of 28 biology student teachers. The experimental group was instructed in the use of higher level questioning, while the control group received a traditional treatment of questioning. As a result of the analyses of the data, it was concluded that the instruction on higher level questioning was effective. Student teachers in the experimental group asked significantly (.01) more higher level questions on tests and verbally. They also tended to be more indirect in their instruction. (Author/RH)
