Cognitive style and children's performance on measures of elementary science competencies

Gerald Alexander Sieben
A natural experiment in a small city school district was utilized to determine the effect of years of E.S.S. experience, the effect of Witkin's construct of cognitive style, and the interaction effect  ...  Good reliability and factoral validity were established for these scales. It was hoped that the four attitude scales would prove to be useful tools for elementary science educators.  ...  We use such criteria as noise level, general order, attention to the work at hand and design of new experiments by the children.  ...
