RESEARCH STUDIES IN COLLEGE SCIENCE FROM JULY 1963 TO JULY 1964.
LEE, ADDISON E.; AND OTHERS
THE FINDINGS AND CHARACTERISTICS OF RESEARCH IN COLLEGE SCIENCE TEACHING COMPLETED FROM JULY 1963 TO JULY 1964 ARE ANALYZED IN THIS PAPER. THE STUDIES ANALYZED ARE GROUPED INTO NINE CATEGORIES--(1) PHILOSOPHY AND OBJECTIVES, (2) PUBLIC POLICY, (3) CURRICULUM, (4) LEARNING, (5) TEACHING METHODS, (6) FACILITIES AND EQUIPMENT, (7) TEACHER EDUCATION, (8) EVALUATION AND RESEARCH DESIGN, AND (9) SUPERVISION. AN ANALYTICAL SUMMARY IS INCLUDED FOR EACH CATEGORY EXCEPT "SUPERVISION AND ADMINISTRATION" FOR WHICH NO COMPLETED RESEARCH WAS RECEIVED. A BIBLIOGRAPHY OF THE 59 RESEARCH REPORTS USED BY THE AUTHORS IS INCLUDED. THE AUTHORS OBSERVE THAT 38 OF 59 RESEARCH STUDIES WERE DOCTORAL THESES OR DISSERTATIONS. OVER ONE-HALF DEALT WITH TEACHING METHODS AND ALMOST EXCLUSIVELY IN FRESHMAN COURSES. MUCH STUDY OF "NEW" AND "TRADITIONAL" COURSES IS CITED. LEARNING, FACILITIES, AND EQUIPMENT ARE NOTED AS RECEIVING MORE RESEARCH SCRUTINY THAN IN THE PAST. MANY STUDIES, THE AUTHORS STATE, SUFFERED FROM FAULTY DESIGN. (RS)
