Welch, Wayne W.
In this seventh paper of the Research Review Series, commissioned by the Science and Mathematics Education Information Analysis Center in cooperation with the National Association for Research in Science Teaching, 189 studies in the ERIC SE collection which are concerned with secondary school science, published in 1968 or 1969, are cited and analyzed. Tables show the prime science discipline focus of the documents, the type of report analyzed, and the primary subject categories of the research. The research findings are summarized and illustrated by selected report which the reviewer considered effectively characterized the results; were clear, representative and generalizable; showed adequate methodology; or, occasionally, illustrated a particular point (good or bad). The summary is arranged under the following headings: Learning Theory and Processes; Teacher Characteristics; Teacher Education; Curriculum Development; International Education; Student Characteristics; Evaluation; Academic Achievement; Educational Programs; and Instructional Procedures. Some comments on the inadequacies of the research reviewed, and suggestions for overcoming these, are made. (AL)
