Johnson, Margaret A.; Lawson, Anton E.
Journal of Research in Science Teaching, v35 n1 p89-103 Jan 1998
The purpose of this study was to determine if factors to predict success in college biology (i.e., prior knowledge of biology or reasoning ability) depend on the instructional method employed (i.e., expository or inquiry). Reasoning ability was found to account for a significant amount of variance in final examination scores, regardless of instructional method. (Author/DKM)
