Mastery Levels of Three Important Biology Concepts by Junior High School Students.
Clamann, York H.; Janke, Delmar L.
In this study, the first three of a panel-judged list of important biology concepts were utilized to determine their mastery level in 75 eighth-graders. The instrument, designed to measure the level of mastery, was based on Frayer's model measuring total, classificatory, and formal concept attainment according to Klausmeier. It was found that the three measured concepts were rank-ordered, with classificatory attainment higher in each concept than formal attainment. (Author/BT)
