An Investigation on the Scientific Thinking Ability of Fourth Year University Students.
Boo, Hong-Kwen; Toh, Kok-Aun
Research in Science Education, v28 n4 p491-506 1998
Fourth-year university students (n=12) in a secondary-science-education degree program in Singapore were interviewed after demonstrations of five familiar chemical reactions. The majority of interviewees used perceptually-dominated rather than conceptually-dominated thinking and were unable to use scientific concepts consistently across the five reactions. Explores reasons and remedies for the students' lack of scientific thinking ability. Contains 50 references. (Author/WRM)
