Iman Abdelraouf Abdelhalim

Abstract


The current research aims to determine the cognitive structure of GFL high and low achieved students. The researcher employed WAT (Word Association Test) on 26 students at the second level. An Achievement Test was used to define the GFL high and low achieved students. WAT (Word Association Test) was implemented to investigate the cognitive structure of the students. Qualitative and quantitative analyses of data were used. Implications for GFL teacher education were presented.
