Asia-Pacific Forum on Science Learning and Teaching, v8 n2 Article 11 Dec 2007
This paper reports on a quasi-experimental study which examined the effectiveness of concept mapping as a revision tool in enhancing pupils' examination performances in primary science. The research objective seeks to determine whether there are significant differences in achievement between the concept mapping and traditional method of revision groups after treatment in both primary gifted and mainstream classes. This research hopes to establish the relationship between pupils' understanding of science concepts along with performance and use of concept mapping as a revision tool in primary science. Findings of this study will be useful towards the implementation of concept mapping as an instructional and revision tool in the primary science classroom. (Contains 16 tables.)
