Research in Science Education in the Federal Republic of Germany.
This document consists of two parts. Part I outlines the general characteristics of science education research in the Federal Republic of Germany (and other German-speaking countries, such as Austria, the German Democratic Republic, and Switzerland). In addition, comparisons are made between research in these countries and research in other countries (including Great Britain and the United States). Areas addressed include: (1) applied research methodology; (2) teacher orientation; (3) Piaget as a reference for curricula; (4) preinstructional concepts; (5) analysis of key concepts in chemistry and physics; and (6) other research areas. Part II describes the characteristics noted in part I for four fields. These fields are: (1) research-based curriculum development; (2) national surveys and assessement studies; (3) evaluation projects; and (4) new theoretical paradigms. (JN)
