L'auteur presente une partie de son travail de chercheur qui consiste a expliciter la theorie du developpement de Jean Piaget. Son objectif se limitait dans le cas present a chercher l'application de cette theorie dans le domaine de l'enseignement de la science dans le secondaire. Outre le fait de lancer une recherche sur le raisonnement de l'eleve, il paraissait essentiel a l'auteur de tenter de communiquer les composantes majeures de la theorie de Piaget aux enseignants du secondaire afin qu'i...

L'auteur, collaborateur fidele et assidu de ce periodique, est a l'origine de nombreux articles presentant le fruit de ses recherches axees notamment sur l'implementation des theories et des descriptions de Piaget sur le developpement et l'apprentissage dans le domaine de l'enseignement scientifique. L'article presente ici etablit le rapport d'experimentations complexes ayant pour objectif de favoriser le developpement d'enfants de cinquieme et septieme annees et leur transition du stade concret...

The article argues that science assessment should change from an item-driven to a construct-driven practice and pay more attention to disciplinary scientific reasoning. It investigates assessment scales developed from a novel theoretical rationale, describing scientific reasoning as three fundamental practices (hypothesizing, experimenting, and evidence evaluation) and building on three types of knowledge (science content knowledge, procedural knowledge, and epistemic knowledge). The scale devel...

Logical Operations Test (BLOT) was developed for assessing the transition to formal operational thinking. BLOT is a 35 item multiple-choice test which examines all of the operations which comprise the logico-mathematical structure of formal operations in Piaget’s theory. The test was translated into Serbian and used in previously reported research. This work deals with two additional parallel versions of the Serbian BLOT. For each original BLOT item two more parallel items have been constructed ...

The 1998 edition of the authoritative Handbook of Child Psychology (HCP, Damon, 1998) was examined to reveal the impact of the work of Jean Piaget on the field of child psychology at the turn of the millennium when TIME magazine hailed him as one of the greatest minds of the century (Papert, 1999). The review is set in the historical context of the role played by Piaget since the first HCP. Counts of citations and references reveal Piaget to be by far the most cited author in the field.

This study is an investigation into the ability of pre-assessment measures of formal thought ability and general achievement to predict students at-risk of poor performance in college- level general chemistry. Over a three year period, data on formal thought ability (as measured by the Test of Logical Thinking, or TOLT) and/or general achievement (as measured by the Scholastic Aptitude Test, or SAT) was collected from over 3000 students as they entered a general chemistry course. The outcome mea...

Students’ abstract reasoning abilities can differ from one society to another. Students’ profiles play significant roles in these differences. The aim of the study is to determine the relationship between middle school students’ cognitive development levels and their profiles (age, gender, and science achievement) using the Science Cognitive Development Test (SCDT) in Turkey. The subjects (N=445) were drawn form 7th and 8th grade students at private and public middle schools in five cities. Whil...

In this chapter, the focus of Robert Karplus’s work on students’ reasoning will be revisited. The emphasis on exploring and understanding students’ reasoning in multiplicative conceptual domains, beyond the elementary school, is central in the mathematics and science education-related work of Robert Karplus. About 30 years ago, at a time when the emphasis in mathematics and science education research was on students’ achievement test scores and related statistical group averages, Robert Karplus ...

This study examines the development of conditional reasoning within a longitudinal design. Two age cohorts were assessed each year for 3 years. One cohort began the investigation as 6th-grade students (M = 11 years, 6 months of age); the other cohort began as 8th-grade students (M =13 years, 8 months of age). At each measurement point, each participant completed 5 reasoning problems consisting of modified versions of the Wason Selection Task (Overton, 1990). Results demonstrated a significant im...

The main purpose of this study was to test the effect of instruction to improve the reasoning skills of undergraduates majoring in the field of education. The results of this investigation demonstrate the lack of proficiency in formal reasoning by undergraduate education majors in the areas of proportional, probabilistic, and correlational reasoning. However, after receiving three specifically planned interventions, students in the experimental group showed improvement in all three areas of reas...
