Robinson, James T.; Tolman, Richard R.
The Biological Sciences Curriculum Study (BSCS) Human Sciences Project developed, produced, and field tested 13 interdisciplinary, non-traditional, non-text science curriculum modules for early adolescents, ages 11 to 14. The Human Sciences Data File- HSPALL (ED 211 383) contains evaluation data from the 1973-1976 field testing of the Human Science Program in seven middle/junior high schools in different parts of the United States. The purpose of this user's guide is to present background information about the data collection process and materials (focusing on the following modules: Survival, Sense...or Nonsense?, Learning, Growing, Rules, Where Do I Fit?, Perception, Reproduction, Change, Feeling Fit, Invention, and Surroundings.) A list of variable names and labels with associated page numbers for the data file is provided. (Author/JN)
