Title : Cognitive Levels as Measure of Higher-Order Thinking Skills in Senior High School Mathematics of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Graduates

Abstract :

The study assessed the cognitive levels of 364 Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) graduates in Senior High School Mathematics composed of General Mathematics, Probability and Statistics, Pre-Calculus and Basic Calculus as to Bloom's remembering, understanding, applying, analyzing and evaluating domains. It utilized a descriptive research design using researchers-made-examination as the main instrument of the study. The overall cognitive levels of the respondents were at the average level in remembering, understanding, and applying; but below average in analyzing and evaluating, particularly in probability and statistics, pre-calculus and basic calculus. These findings showed that the respondents did not reach the level of higher-order thinking skills in their mathematics subjects. Improvement is very vital since the students need higher-order thinking skills to hurdle higher-level tertiary mathematics courses
