The authors explored pupils’ understanding of chemical change. This change was investigated in relation to two cognitive variables: logical thinking and field-dependence/field-independence. The participants were 99 sixth-grade elementary school pupils, which were involved in two different tasks related to combustion. The findings provide empirical evidence that the above individual differences have an effect on pupils’ understanding the phenomenon of chemical change at that critical age.

From Intuition to Data: Using Logic Models to Measure Professional Development Outcomes for Educators Working With Students on the Autism Spectrum
The purpose of this article is to provide an overview of logic models and their role in the creation of PD programs and in the evaluation of outcomes. The authors provide an example of how a logic model can be used with PD programs by providing a description of its use with the Indiana Resource Center for Autism's (IRCA) School Team Training program. The authors focus on how the use of a logic model allowed the IRCA to restructure the team training program to more systematically evaluate and document the outcomes of the school team training program.
