An Investigation into the Relationship Between Organizational Climate and the Biology Students' Perception of Present Biology Practices.
Ackerson, Virgil Lee
Investigated was the effect of organizational climate on the biology curriculum practices as perceived by the students. The major hypothesis of the study expressed the expectation that open climate biology teachers would incorporate a different mode of curriculum practices than would closed climate biology teachers. Data were collected by use of the Organizational Climate Description Questionnaire, the Biology Laboratory Activities Checklist, and the Biology Classroom Activities Checklist. A t-test was used in analysis of the hypotheses and Pearson product-moment correlation coefficient to check selected relationships. Based on the data the following were concluded: (1) There was no relationship between authenticity and the biology curriculum practices present within the school; (2) Males perceived the biology practices differently than did females; (3) The biology teachers' perceptions of the Esprit of the school correlates significantly with the biology laboratory practices.
