EFFECT OF VARIED PRESENTATIONS OF LABORATORY EXERCISES WITHIN PROGRAMED MATERIALS ON STUDENT ABILITY TO APPLY SCIENTIFIC PRINCIPLES TO PROBLEM SITUATIONS.
NASCA, DONALD
AN EVALUATION WAS MADE OF THREE METHODS OF PRESENTING SCIENCE LABORATORY EXERCISES COMBINED WITH PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION. FIVE EXPERIMENTS WITH EIGHTH-GRADE STUDENTS WERE CONDUCTED TO EVALUATE TEMPORAL RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN THE METHODS AND THE EFFECTS OF THE METHODS. MEASURES OF ABILITY TO SOLVE WORK AND ENERGY PROBLEMS WERE OBTAINED FROM SUBJECTS WHO OBSERVED, READ, OR RECEIVED ONLY PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION WITH LABORATORY EXPERIENCE. ALL METHODS PRODUCED SIGNIFICANT LEARNING GAINS. MULTIGROUP COMPARISONS BY ANALYSIS OF COVARIANCE SHOWED THAT EFFECTIVENESS OF PROCEDURES USED WAS HIGHLY DEPENDENT UPON THE TESTING INSTRUMENTS USED. NO SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCE AMONG THE METHODS WAS OBSERVED. (WN)
