Abstract
The study was conducted in order to determine the influence of cognitive dimensions, conative characteristics and social status on school grades in the native language of the students of a secondary school of chemical technology. For this purpose, 224 students of a secondary school of chemical technology were included in the sample. To evaluate the effectiveness of the input processor, or perceptual reasoning, IT-1 test was chosen. To evaluate the effectiveness of the serial processor, or symbolic reasoning, AL-4 test was selected. To evaluate the effectiveness of the parallel processor, or identification of relations and correlates, S-1 test was chosen. For the assessment of conative characteristics, CON6 measurement instrument was selected by means of which the following conative regulators were evaluated: regulator of activity, regulator of organic functions, regulator of defense reactions, regulator of attack reactions, system for coordination of regulatory functions, system for integration of regulatory functions and system for excitation and inhibition. To evaluate social status, a model constructed by Saksida and Momirovic was applied. INST2 and questionnaire SSMIN were used in this research. For the evaluation of students` academic achievements, their school grades were used. The academic achievements were checked by means of knowledge tests as indicators of the acquired knowledge and skills. The algorithms and programs implemented within this study are presented in full and, the results of these programs are analyzed.
