Résumé
The present research aims to assess and enhance Palestinian primary school pupils’ inductive reasoning thinking skills in their early school age by means of technology. We intended to explore the possibility of applying online tests that already have established psychometric characteristics to assess pupils in regular Palestinian educational practice at the early stages of schooling. First, we explored the feasibility and the applicability of computer-based assessment among young pupils by testing their basic mouse skills. Second, we moved forward by the adaptation and piloting of a computer-based inductive reasoning test, developed in Hungary to find out its applicability in Palestinian educational context. Finally, we adapted and developed an online training program for inductive reasoning further based on the Palestinian school curriculum and run the intervention study. The present empirical research connects important developing areas of educational research and places them in the context of the development of the Palestinian education system : (a) improving the quality of thinking skills in the Palestinian educational context especially when it comes to early age school children, (b) giving more attention to educational assessment in research and practice, which can open the doors to evidence-based educational developments, (c) using the advantages of computer-based testing, e.g. reducing the timeframe and costs of assessment. In the main part of this study, we investigated the effectiveness of an online intervention programme on different samples, that is, on different groups of pupils having different levels of inductive reasoning, having different socio-economic factors, and gender. Due to the pioneering nature of the present research study in the Palestinian educational context, at the end of the dissertation we provide a multitude of recommendations and suggestions for further researches.
