Ibe, Milagros D. – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1983
This study investigated the effects of specific criteria for marking a test on its reliability and validity. Eight algebra word problems were administered to grade 10 students. The objectivity of scoring criteria improved the reliability of the test, but did not affect its validity. (MNS)
Descriptors: Algebra, Educational Research, Grade 10, Mathematics Instruction
Ahmad, Hamidah; Rubba, Peter A. – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1983
The study investigated the extent of process skill achievement among a sample of recent Malaysian high school graduates, and the relationship of these scores to science scores. Among the conclusions is that the science tests placed little emphasis on the assessment of process skills. (MNS)

Maddock, Max N. – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1983
Reported is a series of curriculum research studies carried out in Papua New Guinea between 1972 and 1980 into the effects of formal schooling, with compulsory component of science instruction on attitudes toward investigation, control, and manipulation of natural phenomena and toward traditional religion. (MNS)
Descriptors: Attitudes, Educational Research, Natural Sciences, Religious Factors
Cheung, Y. L. – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1983
Provided are some ideas on teaching elementary numerical methods to sixth-form students. Comments are included on the syllabus recently introduced at Advanced Level in Hong Kong. (MNS)

Kaur, Berinderjeet – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1992
A study determined the abilities of students to interpret and represent graphs by asking 15-year-old female students (n=10) to write stories to accompany any 3 of 12 graphs presented. Results indicated that the students were not able to accurately relate real life situations to graphical forms. (MDH)
