Zuzovsky, Ruth; Tamir, Pinchas
International Journal of Science Education, v21 n10 p1101-21 Oct 1999
Uses data from the Third International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) to determine the extent of Israeli students' ability to give scientific explanations of events in earth, life, and physical science. Finds student explanations to be generally simple, often incomplete, and often consisting only of descriptive or teleological explanations. Contains 22 references. (Author/WRM)
