The Retention of Science Concepts After a Period of Six Months by Students in High School Biology, Chemistry, and Physics, as a Function of Selected Student and Teacher Variables.
Haindl, Martin Wilhelm
Investigated was the relationship between Science Concept Retention by high school science students six months after completion of a course in BSCS biology, CHEMS chemistry, and PSSC physics with each of the following variables: I.Q., Sex, Science Achievement, Natural Science Development, Reading Comprehension, Quantitative Thinking, Delay Avoidance, Work Methods, Teacher Approval, Education Acceptance, Student Perception of Teacher-Student Interaction (I/P) and Teacher Indirect to Direct Ratios (I/D). The sample included 401 science students selected randomly from 12 teachers. Evidence was obtained that in general the predictive value of each of the cognitive variables and I.Q. on Retention of Science Concepts for the combined sciences and the predictive value of the cognitive variables and I.Q. on the Retention of Science Concepts in the individual sciences was high. In general, the predictive value of each of the affective variables and Sex on Retention of Science Concepts for the combined sciences and the predictive value of the affective variables and Sex on Retention of Science concepts in the individual sciences was low. Regression analyses for biology, chemistry, physics, and overall science concept retention are presented. (Author/RH)
