This study aimed to explore the self-estimated intelligence dimensions of seventh and tenth grade students, and the effect of grade level, gender, age, socio economic status (SES), physics/science achievement, and branch in school (science-math/literature-math/social sciences-literature) on these dimensions. In this study a Multiple Intelligence Inventory was used as measuring instrument. The study was conducted in randomly selected 26 elementary and 7 high schools throughout Çankaya, Keçiören and Yenimahalle districts of Ankara with a total of 3721 seventh and tenth grade students in fall 2003-2004 semester. The data obtained from the administration of the measuring instrument were analyzed by using multivariate analysis of variance (MANOVA) and bivariate correlations. Results indicated that most dominant intelligence of seventh, tenth, and all students was the interpersonal intelligence according to their self-perceptions. Results of the statistical analyses indicated that grade level of students had a significant effect on their self-estimated intelligence dimensions. Strengths and weakness of the students vary according to their grade level. Also, significant differences found in female and male students̕ self-estimated intelligence dimensions for both two different grade levels, and tenth grade students coming from three different branches. Bivariate correlations revealed low positive correlations between science achievement and interpersonal intelligence

The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of logical thinking ability and gender on students' science achievements and attitudes towards science. Test of Logical Thinking (TOLT), Attitude towards Science Scale, and Sense Organs Achievement Test were administered to 72 elementary school students to determine their logical thinking abilities, attitudes towards science and achievement, respectively. The two-way Multivariate Analysis of Variance (MANOVA) results revealed no statistically significant m...

The present study investigated middle school students’ views on the nature of science (NOS) in relation to gender, grade level, and learning environment perceptions adopting a cross-sectional and correlational research design. A total of 608 middle school students (319 girls and 289 boys) attending Grade 7 (n = 286) and Grade 8 (n = 322) participated in the study. Students’ NOS views were examined in terms of Theory-laden /Cultural impacts, Changing/tentative nature, Non-objective nature, and Creative natur...
