What Makes a Student a High Achiever in Science?
Tamir, Pinchas
Gifted Education International, v9 n1 p24-32 1993
Comparison of differences between the top 5% of ninth- (n=1942) and twelfth-grade (n=2277) students in science achievement and remaining students found that far more high achievers were male, typically came from small families, and had parents with more formal education (often in the sciences). High achievers typically preferred questioning over rote memorization. (Author/DB)
