Journal Title:SCHOLARLY RECSEARCH JOURNAL FOR INTERDISCIPLINARY STUDIES
In the era of science and technology, we need students
who can cope with the challenging
situation of the world. To accept these challenges, need of students having some inherent
potential to accept these challenges is essential. Eighteen achievement tests covering different
field of Chemistry was constructed.
Item analysis of these tests was done. Chi
square tests of
normality of distribution were applied after computing the mean and S.D. Transformation of test
scores into T
scales in test no 1 where the distribution of score was abnormal. All these
nt tests had more than.85 reliability. Product moment correlation was used to get
correlation matrix between eighteen tests. Factorization was stopped after five factors.
Difference between obtained and guessed communalities became less than 0.10 after fir
reiteration. Result indicates that there are five factors responsible for learning basic concept of
