Research Review Series, Science Paper 3. A Summary of Research in Science Education for the Years of 1965-67, College Level.
Montean, John; Butzow, John
This review of research related to college and university science teaching and learning is based upon reports published from 1965 through 1967 and contained in the collection of the ERIC Information Analysis Center for Science, Mathematics, and Environmental Education. The 77 studies are abstracted under the following headings, with a short summary of the major generalizations made for each section: Instructional Procedures; Teacher Education; Equipment and Materials; Curriculum; Achievement; Science and Society; Administration and Supervision; Evaluation and Educational Objectives; and Teacher and Student Characteristics. A general summary comments upon weaknesses found in the research, identifies areas that need additional research, and comments on the lack of relationship between college courses and the secondary school science courses that students have taken. The bibliography includes ordering information for those studies cited that are available from the ERIC Document Reproduction Service. (AL)
