Middle-Schoolers' Interest in Science and Space Science: Dimensions of Content, Context, & Actualization.
Hickey, Daniel T.; And Others
This study examined three instruments developed for studying anchored science learning environments. The evaluated instruments (Science/Space Task Interest Survey, Science/Space Attitude Survey, and Science/Space Activity Survey) were developed to be used to study any space-related school science environment in middle and upper grades. The instruments were administered to 470 seventh-graders at two middle schools. The reliabilities of the scales in terms of internal consistencies and test-retest reliability were very high, and all instruments were useful for identifying meaningful differences in two populations. Copies of the instruments are not included in this document. (PR)
