Research in Pedagogy, v7 n1 p1-6 2017

It has also been found that there exists a difference in cognitive behaviours of science teachers based on the variation in their type of schools while there is no significant difference in information processing behaviours based on type the of activities, qualification, instructional method used and their castes.
