An Evaluation Scheme for Elementary Science.
Vivian, V. Eugene
Checklists for use in evaluating the progress of students in the primary and middle grades of elementary school in terms of their understanding of the methods of science and some aspects of scientific literacy are presented. The checklists are based on the objectives of the Science Curriculum Improvement Study, and deliberately ignore subject matter knowledge. The checklists are of two types: one, in report card format, lists behaviors which can be used as evidence that can serve as "observable indices that selected goals" are being achieved; the other lists a smaller number of key behaviors on a tally sheet designed to report progress of an entire class. A brief account of the development of the checklists is included. (AL)
