|Issue Date: ||2013-01-07T02:19:08Z
The purpose of this study was to investigate the science process skills of gifted students in the Republic of China, as measured by Science Process Skills Test. The multiple regression technique was used to determine which variables contributed to making the prediction. The subjects 1228 seventh grade and eighth grade students, identified as gifted, were selected from 24 junior high schools within the Taiwan Province, Taipei and Kaohsiung regions of Republic of China. The following results were found regarding the science process skills in gifted students: 1) That logical thinking, grade, attitude towards science, and socioeconomic status of parents were significant variables contributing to the prediction of science process skills; and were capable of accounting for 16.1% of the variance on the Science Process skills Test. 2) Logical thinking, grade, and attitude towards science accounted for 15.6% of the variance on the Science Process Skills Test. 3) Logical thinking ability was the strongest predictor and accounted for 10.5% of the variance on the Science Process Skills Test. 4) The order of subtest of science process skills with decreasing difficulty was shown as follows: identifying testable hypotheses, operationally defining, data and graph interpretation, experimental design, identifying variable. 5) The mean and SD scores for all subjects on the Science Process skills Test were 29.38 and 3.43. The overall percentage of correct answers for all subjects was 81.6%.
