An Analysis of Learning Hierarchy in Developing Evaluation of Experimental Investigation Skills for Junior High School Students
Author: Rong-Fu Hsu


The instrument was developed in order to evaluate junior high school students' technical skills during the process of their taking courses in science.
According to the five levels of hierarchy organizors in; designing an evaluation as established in the former study, the objectives and scoring criteria of the instrument were constructed. Also, the contents of the current science text-book were used as a basis for content validity and difficulty reference.
The findings showed that there was significant difference in students' performance in the identifying and generating types of evaluation between grade 7 and grades 8,9. One should notice the different degrees of assessment for different types of item designing. Furthermore, the findings supported that the assessing criteria could be constructed by considering the cross interaction designing between the roles of the paramters of variables and qualitative criteria.
