|Other Titles:||An Analysis Of The Science Ability Of Chinese Junior High School Students|
Department od Education, NTNU
The main purpose of this study was to compare the science ability of Chinese junior high school students with different sexes, different grades and in different residential areas. The procedures included a review of relevant literatures and the development of a set of science ability tests. The tests which consisted of three subtests,“mathematics, physical science, and biology, were designed to measure the students' ability in natural science and to predict the probability of success in the specific subject. Item analysis of the test was conducted. Three thousand and two hundred students of grades seven and eight were sampled from 24 junior high schools in Taipei City, Kaohsiung City and Taiwan Province. These students were divided into 8 groups according to their difference in sex, grade, and residency. Three subtests were given to the students. The results of the test were as follows：1. Boys performed significantly better than girls in all of the three subtests. 2. Urban students performed significantly better than rural students in all of the three subsets. 3. Eighth─grade students performed significantly better than seventh─grade students in all of the three subtests. Based on the findings, some suggestions to science education were made in this thesis.
