The Knowledge of World Geography in the Sixth to Ninth Grade Students
Example of Taiwan National Geographic Championship
|Abstract:||「國家地理知識大競賽」是國內新興的另一種考試，其目的除培養國內學生世界地理知識的廣度，並甄拔參與國際競賽的選手，考試方式不再僅是靜態的紙筆測驗，尚包涵動態的機智問答，賽事分為初賽、複賽、準決賽、總決賽四個階段，全程長達兩個月；測驗內容非常廣泛，舉凡地理相關的議題皆可入題，測驗範圍不限台灣；且因競賽未依學齡分組，參賽者包括六年級至九年級的學生。本研究之目的主要是分析分析國家地理知識大競賽的試題特色，並探討了不同學習階段學生對世界地理概念的學習成效。研究對象是2006 年11 月參與地理知識大競賽進入複賽的1081 位學生，準決賽的12 位學生與決賽的6 學生。測試結果發現隨著學齡增長，測驗成績有逐漸提高的趨勢；但各年級之間的最大差距，不是小學與國中之別，而是七年級與八年級學生，其因七年級的地理教科書尚未跨出台灣，學生對世界其它區域的認識需自行閱讀課外讀物，即使是得獎者亦不例外；且學生對判斷方位、地圖的使用、簡圖的繪製等地理技能的應用能力，普遍不足。|
