Independent Study of Collegiate Biological Science as a General Education Course: Involving Achievement and Understanding the Processes of Science.
Stavick, Lloyd Clair
The "Test on Understanding Science, Form W" and the "Nelson Biology Test, Form E", were administered before and after a college general biology course to a random selection of students who had chosen to take an individualized study program and to a random group of students who had chosen to follow the lecture-laboratory alternative. There were no differences in biology achievement "(Nelson)" or understanding of science between the two groups. There were differences in test scores related to demographic variables: female students made greater gains on one of the "Test on Understanding Science" subtests; students with higher ACT scores performed better; and students whose fathers had attended college scored higher on the "Test on Understanding Science."
