THE COMPARATIVE EFFECTS OF PSSC PHYSICS AND TRADITIONAL PHYSICS ON STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT.
BERRY, WILLIAM E.
THE ACHIEVEMENT OF STUDENTS ENROLLED IN PHYSICAL SCIENCE STUDY COMMITTEE PHYSICS IS COMPARED WITH THAT OF STUDENTS ENROLLED IN TRADITIONAL PHYSICS. GROUPS OF STUDENTS WERE PRETESTED FOR MENTAL ABILITY AND SCIENCE KNOWLEDGE. AFTER COMPLETING THE RESPECTIVE COURSES, BOTH GROUPS WERE GIVEN THE COOPERATIVE PHYSICS TEST AND THE PHYSICAL SCIENCE STUDY COMMITTEE FINAL EXAMINATION. STUDENT SCORES ON THE POST-TEST WERE TREATED STATISTICALLY BY ANALYSIS OF COVARIANCE. CONCLUSIONS DRAWN ARE (1) STUDENTS ENROLLED IN PHYSICAL SCIENCE STUDY COMMITTEE PHYSICS LEARNED AS MUCH OF THE ESSENTIAL SUBJECT MATTER CONTENT OF TRADITIONAL PHYSICS AS DID THOSE ENROLLED IN THE TRADITIONAL COURSES, AND (2) STUDENTS ENROLLED IN THE PHYSICAL SCIENCE STUDY COMMITTEE COURSES LEARNED MORE OF THE ESSENTIAL SUBJECT MATTER OF THE PHYSICAL SCIENCE STUDY COMMITTEE COURSE THAN DID THOSE ENROLLED IN THE TRADITIONAL COURSES.
