DEVELOPMENT AND STANDARDIZATION OF SCALE OF COGNITIVE LOAD IN GEOGRAPHY

Shyam Sundar, Dr. Shamshir Singh Dhillon.

Abstract
Education plays pivotal role in the harmonious development of an individual‟s personality. While pursuing different academic disciplines and goals, students face a lot of difficulties and barriers in the way of achieving their academic goals and high level of cognitive load can be one of the critical factors in determining the motivation and academic achievement of the students. Cognitive load can impair the achievement motivation of the students and can also act as a hurdle in their academic growth. Therefore, it is very crucial to measure the cognitive load of the students in different subjects being studied by them. For the fulfillment of this purpose, Scale on Cognitive Load in Geography (SCLG) was developed. The development of this scale by the investigator was aimed to measure the cognitive load of the students of 9th class in the subject of Geography. After reviewing the related literature, three dimensions i.e. intrinsic, extraneous and germane cognitive load were identified for preparing the items of the scale. In the initial draft of the development of this scale, 40 items were prepared out of which 11 items were modified and 08 items were eliminated during the validation process. Along with this, three items were deleted due to poor discrimination index and finally 29 items were retained in the final form of scale. The scale was subjected to 361 students of 9th class of Rajasthan in order to establish test retest reliability. The reliability coefficient of test-retest was found to be 0.70 and reliability coefficient of internal consistency was found to be 0.87. Afterward, z-score norms were prepared for boys and girls separately and norms for the interpretation of cognitive load were also prepared. The final form of SCLG was proved to be having good psychometric properties.

Key words: Extraneous, Intrinsic, Germane Cognitive Load, Geography
