Extent of Psychological Differentiation as Related to Achievement in Science and Attitude Toward Science.
Bowles, Anna; Boss, Marvin W.
This study hypothesized a relationship between field independence and both attitude toward science and achievement in science. Testing instruments were the Concealed Figures Test, the Scientific Attitude Inventory, classroom achievement tests, and the Henmon-Nelson Test of Mental Ability. Using the Concealed Figures Test, two extreme groups, one field-dependent and the other field-independent, were identified. It was predicted that, with mental ability controlled, field-independent subjects would score higher on the achievement tests and have a more positive attitude toward science. A multivariate analysis of covariance confirmed the prediction. (Author)
