Mastropieri, Margo A.; Scruggs, Thomas E.; Boon, Richard; Carter, Karen Butcher
Remedial and Special Education, v22 n3 p130-37 May-Jun 2001
A study involving 75 elementary students, 51 with high-incidence disabilities, investigated variables associated with learning in an inquiry-oriented approach to the study of density and buoyancy. Preconceptions, scientific predictions, and academic achievement measures were not predictive of task performance. However, grade level and IQ were strongly related to performance.
