Handbook for the Application of the Science Curriculum Assessment System. First Trial Edition.
Matthews, Charles C.; Phillips, Darrell G.
Described are Science Curriculum Assessment Study (SCAS) techniques and instruments and how they are applied to children and teachers. SCAS is a system for monitoring changes (in children and their teachers) associated with the classroom implementation of a variety of science curricula. SCAS combines the interview techniques and theories of Jean Piaget with the techniques of classroom interaction analysis. SCAS provides a system for studying the intellectual development of children, classroom verbal and non-verbal behavior of children and their teachers, and various elements of the science curriculum. Persons interested in depth study of research and theories associated with SCAS techniques and instruments will find the bibliography useful. (BR)
