Research in Science Education. 1948 Through 1952.
Swift, J. Nathan
This book is one of a series of reviews of research in science education, and covers the period 1948 throfgh 1952. Forty-four of the more important research studies in science education published during this period have been digested. Each digest reports the study under the headings: Problem, Procedure, Findings, and, where appropriate, Conclusions. The topics treated include status studies of science programs, considerations of the objectives and rationale of science programs, studies of concept development and other learning processes in science, research into student and teacher characteristics relevant to science education, and studies of testing and evaluation in science teaching. A further 99 studies are listed with short annotations (of one or two sentences). Three indexes list the 44 digests under science subject treated and educational level (elementary, secondary or college) as well as under the topic treated. (EB)
