Abstract

Puzzles testing proportional reasoning were done by twenty-five hundred students in beginning science courses. Responses indicated each student's stage of intellectual development a la Piaget. Final examination questions demanding either formal reasoning or only concrete reasoning were given in the same courses. Examination performance and proportional reasoning ability are correlated.
