The ISCS Self-Assessment System. Teacher and Student Reaction to It.
Burkman, Ernest; Balzano, Betsy Conlon
This report outlines the rationale by which behavioral objectives for Intermediate Science Curriculum Study (ISCS) materials have been generated and their subsequent use in developing the ISCS student self-assessment system. The ISCS project is designed to develop, test, and disseminate a system of individualized science instruction for grades seven through nine. Students progress at different rates and through different instructional pathways, depending upon their interests, abilities, and previous experience. The materials are designed to accomplish this in ordinary science classrooms with teachers of limited special training. The self-assessment system is composed of sets of questions for each chapter of the basic core text. Responses to questionnaires administered to students and teachers were highly favorable toward the ISCS materials. (Author/RS)
