A TOOL FOR INDEPENDENT STUDY IN BIOLOGY.
RICARD, JACK
IN THE BIOLOGICAL SCIENCES DEPARTMENT OF SACRAMENTO CITY COLLEGE, EMPHASIS HAS BEEN PLACED ON A TYPE OF INDEPENDENT STUDY INVOLVING SELECTION, DESIGN, PERFORMANCE, AND REPORTING OF AN EXPERIMENT TO EVALUATE AN HYPOTHESIS FORMULATED BY THE STUDENT CONCERNING A TOPIC OF HIS SELECTION. THE FACULTY HAS DEVELOPED A PROJECT SELECTION FORM, WITH DIRECTIONS TO THE STUDENT CONCERNING TITLE OF PROJECT, REASON FOR SELECTION, HYPOTHESIS, SUBJECTS, VARIABLES, CONTROL GROUPS, TEST GROUPS, REFERENCES, AND EQUIPMENT. USE OF THE FORM HAS BEEN VALUABLE IN (1) INCREASING EFFECTIVE INSTRUCTOR-STUDENT COMMUNICATION, (2) DETERRING STUDENT PROCRASTINATION, (3) TRAINING IN THE ANALYTICAL PROCESS OF STUDY, AND (4) PROVIDING A FOUNDATION FOR ACTUAL PERFORMANCE OF THE EXPERIMENT AND SUBSEQUENT REPORTING. THE DOCUMENT CONTAINS A REPRODUCTION OF THE FORM. THIS ARTICLE IS PUBLISHED IN "IMPROVING COLLEGE AND UNIVERSITY TEACHING," VOLUME 13, NUMBER 2, SPRING 1965. (WO)
