Education and Human Development Master's Theses
The purpose of this study was to determine which of the following variables contributed most to students' success on the New York State Regents Chemistry examination. The four variables to be assessed are Space Relations, Numerical Ability, Verbal Reasoning and Language Usage. Studies by Carter, LaRussa and Bodner (1987) using college students enrolled in general chemistry suggest there is a significant relationship between spatial ability and chemistry performance.
Based on such research, it is hypothesized that a similar relationship exists at the secondary level. In order to see if such a relationship exists an investigation to determine the validity of ...
