British Columbia Dept. of Education, Victoria.
The 1982 British Columbia Science Assessment was designed to gather information from the professional literature, review panels, interpretation panels, teachers, and students enrolled in grades 4, 8, and 12 (and a sample from grade 10). This pamphlet provides brief answers to nine questions related to the assessment. These questions focus on: (1) why the assessment was conducted; (2) who was involved; (3) how well student performance met provincial expectations in 1982; (5) a comparison of 1982 with 1978 results; (6) student attitudes toward science; (7) major findings; (8) major recommendations; and (9) uses of assessment data and results. Detailed achievement results, teacher questionnaire results, conclusions and recommendations are provided in a separate General Report. Highlights of the assessment, summary tables of important results, and conclusions and recommendations are provided in separate Summary Report. (Author/JN)
