Abstract
The study mainly was intended to find out the relationship between social competence and Problem Solving Ability in physics among higher secondary school students. For this, the investigator selected a representative sample of 781 Higher Secondary School Students studying in XII standard of science stream selected from Kannur, Palakkad, Thrissur, Kottayam, and Thiruvananthapuram Districts of Kerala state. The sample was selected using a random sampling technique. The investigator selected gender as the classificatory variable for the present study. The social competence scale and Problem Solving Ability test in physics were the tools used for the study. To find out the correlation between Social Competence and Problem Solving Ability in Physics, Pearson’s Product Moment Coefficient of Correlation analysis was used. The difference in correlation between Social Competence and Problem Solving Ability in Physics with respect to gender was estimated using the ‘z’ test. The result showed a positive relationship between Social Competence and Problem Solving Ability in Physics for the total sample of Higher Secondary School Students and no significant difference in correlation between Social Competence and Problem Solving Ability in Physics was found in the case of male and female Higher Secondary School Students.
