Manipulation of Logical Structure of Chemistry Problems and Its Effect on Student Performance.
Niaz, Mansoor; Robinson, William R.
Journal of Research in Science Teaching, v29 n3 p211-26 Mar 1992
Investigates the effect that manipulation of the extent of formal reasoning required for solving chemistry problems has upon student performance, and presents a cognitive model for the qualitative analysis of that effect. Concludes that the developmental level of students is the most important predictor of problem-solving success given significant changes in the logical complexity of chemistry problems. (JJK)
