Journal of Research in Science Teaching, v25 n9 p763-75 Dec 1988
Investigates the influence of five cognitive variables on high school students' performance on balancing chemical equations by inspection. Reports that reasoning, restructuring, and disembedding variables could be a single variable, and that working memory capacity does not influence overall performance. Results of hierarchical regression analysis are also reported. (Author/YP)
