First, most students mainly performed simple observation in a certain sense or observation based on guess or experience from real life. Second, most students did not know the method and the criterion to classify or identify properties of objects correctly. Third, most students were unable to measure scientifically because of poor skills to manipulate for science experiment equipments. Fourth, most students did not identify the relationship between cause and effect and tendency, so that they could not predict it well. Fifth, some students had a good reasoning based on objective and realistic informations. Sixth, there were some differences in the basic process skills according to IQ except some measurement and reasoning. Lastly it was discussed the enhancement of the basic process skills for students with disabilities.
