A Comparison of Concept and Principle Learning About Organic Evolution Between Tenth Grade Students in a Biological Sciences Curriculum Study Course Versus a Course in Traditional Biology.
Barrow, Wesley Charles
Investigated were the effects of two different methods of instruction on concept and principle learning related to organic evaluation. Also investigated was the relationship between achievement and science aptitude. The sample was selected from tenth grade students in a high school in Arizona. They were randomly assigned to a Biological Sciences Curriculum Study (BSCS) Yellow Version course or to a traditional biology course. Analysis of the data included the following: (1) no significant difference in the comparison of concept achievement; (2) a significant difference in the comparison of principles achievement (BSCS students scored higher); and (3) significant correlations between concept and principle learning about organic evolution and science aptitude.
