Computer Supplemented Instruction in Secondary School Science: Implementation Proceedings and Survey Findings from a One-Year Program.
Donaldson, William S.
An experimental program for secondary school science students, Computer Supplemented Instruction in Science (CSI Science), was proposed to provide terminal time for all students, provide problem-solving and simulation experience, and identify those students who would most benefit from a computer-based science course. Results indicated students gravitated toward the computer for a variety of reasons. A one-classification multivariate analysis of variance followed by a two-group multiple discriminant analysis yielded a group membership identification function suitable for prescription of computer/non-computer science offerings. It was concluded that student-types could be identified and classified for CSI or non-CSI assignments. Several suggestions for implementation and identification of students to direct into CSI Science courses are presented. (Author/JM)
