It was studied in physics laboratory with the determined 16 students during 5 months and this studies was recorded by observing each of the students' progress. Progressing of physics abilities of the students were investigated in six categories: Interest in Subjects, Ability to Form New Information, Ability to Interpret Subjects and Related Events, Making Analysis, Associating Different Subjects, Improving Learned Information.
