A STUDY OF THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN ACHIEVEMENT IN PSSC PHYSICS AND EXPERIENCE IN RECENTLY DEVELOPED COURSES IN SCIENCE AND MATHEMATICS.
ACKERSON, PAUL BERNDT
THE RELATIONSHIP OF ACHIEVEMENT IN PSSC PHYSICS TO EXPERIENCE IN SMSG MATHEMATICS, CHEM STUDY CHEMISTRY, CBA CHEMISTRY, AND BSCS BIOLOGY WAS DETERMINED. DATA WERE GATHERED IN 25 HIGH SCHOOL PHYSICS CLASSES IN SEVEN HIGH SCHOOLS. ANALYSIS OF COVARIANCE WAS USED IN THE TREATMENT OF THE DATA. PSSC TESTS FIVE AND TEN WERE USED AS CRITERIA OF ACHIEVEMENT IN PSSC PHYSICS. COMPARISONS OF ACHIEVEMENT IN PSSC PHYSICS WERE MADE BETWEEN STUDENTS WITH BACKGROUNDS IN (1) SMSG MATHEMATICS OR CONVENTIONAL MATHEMATICS, (2) CHEM STUDY CHEMISTRY OR CONVENTIONAL CHEMISTRY, (3) CBA CHEMISTRY OR CONVENTIONAL CHEMISTRY, (4) BSCS BIOLOGY OR CONVENTIONAL BIOLOGY, AND (5) BETWEEN STUDENTS WITH DIFFERENT LEVELS OF EXPERIENCE IN SMSG MATHEMATICS. THE DATA SHOWED NO SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES IN ACHIEVEMENT IN PSSC PHYSICS BETWEEN STUDENTS WITH A BACKGROUND IN (1) CHEM STUDY CHEMISTRY OR CONVENTIONAL CHEMISTRY, (2) CBA CHEMISTRY OR CONVENTIONAL CHEMISTRY, AND (3) BSCS BIOLOGY OR CONVENTIONAL BIOLOGY. CONFLICTING EVIDENCE WAS FOUND IN THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN DIFFERENCE LEVELS OF SMSG MATHEMATICS AND PSSC ACHIEVEMENT. A SIMILAR CONFLICT WAS FOUND BETWEEN EXPERIENCE IN SMSG MATHEMATICS AND CONVENTIONAL MATHEMATICS.
