Laboratory Science Program in Clover, Preliminary Evaluation Report.
Clover School District, SC.
An evaluation of the laboratory science program developed in the Clover, South Carolina, Middle School produced the following results: (1) Although the general attitude toward science, according to the attitude scale, appeared to be declining in both groups, the experimental groups showed a more positive attitude toward science than did the control group; (2) The attitude toward science did not appear to differ across grades; (3) The experimental group showed higher achievement test scores than the control group; (4) It appeared that the control group was making "normal" progress; and (5) It appeared that the experimental group was making above-average gains in performance. These gains were linear and cumulative. (Author/CP)
