Revising and Assessing Explanatory Models in a High School Genetics Class: A Comparison of Unsuccessful and Successful Performance.
Johnson, Susan K.; Stewart, Jim
Science Education, v86 n4 p463-80 Jul 2002
Describes the model-revising problem-solving strategies of two groups of students (one successful, one unsuccessful) as they worked in a genetics course to revise Mendel's simple dominance model to explain the inheritance of a trait expressed in any of four variations. Finds differences in the groups' abilities to recognize anomalous data, use existing models as templates for revisions, and assess revised models. (Author/MM)
