Reasoning about Logical Propositions and Success in Science.
Piburn, Michael D.
Journal of Research in Science Teaching, v27 n9 p887-900 Dec 1990
Found grades in science achieved by tenth-grade general science students correlated with their scores on Propositional Logic Test. The students' ability level was consistently related to the pattern of errors they committed on that measure. Mean scores were lowest on a subtest of ability to use the bicondition and implication, higher on the disjunction, and highest on the conjunction. (PR)
