Investigations in Science Education, Vol. 4, No. 1. Expanded Abstracts and Critical Analyses of Recent Research.
Helgeson, Stanley L., Ed.; Blosser, Patricia E., Ed.
This issue provides abstracts and analyses, prepared by science educators, of research reports in two areas of investigation. The first, student characteristics, includes three reports which deal with student interests, attitudes, and values. The second, teacher characteristics, also contains three reports. These studies deal with teachers' characteristics and values, and students' perceptions of teacher characteristics. Finally, there are three other studies including a study of locus of control, a study of student understanding of the nature of science, and a survey of teacher and pupil perception of the Nuffield Physical Science course. Each abstract includes bibliographic data, research design and procedure, purpose, and research rationale, along with the abstractor's analysis. (BB)
