The Relationship Between Combinations of Levels of Facilities and Equipment, Method of Instruction, Critical Thinking Ability, and Achievement in Biology.
Riggs, Morris Palmer
Assessed were: (1) the relationship between student ability to do critical thinking and to achieve in biological sciences with facilities and equipment (Factor F) and instruction methods (Factor M) and (2) current attempts to upgrade facilities and equipment and to establish the inquiry approach in biology classes. Twenty-five randomly selected schools from Eastern Tennessee participated in the study. Data regarding instructional methods were obtained from students who completed the Biology Classroom Activities Checklist. Data regarding equipment and facilities were obtained from teachers who completed the 1964 Revised BSCS Biology Laboratory Facilities Checklist. Conclusions and inferences included the following: (1) classes with more adequate facilities and equipment and more innovative methods had higher achievement; (2) interaction effects were found between Factor F and Factor M. Discussion of the various factor combinations and t-test analyses are included. (RH)
