A Comparison of the Effectiveness of Two Methods of Presenting Science Experiments to Children of the Fourth Grade in a Northeastern Suburb.
Netburn, Allan N.
The study describes the effectiveness of teaching as prescribed by the Conceptually Oriented Program in Elementary Science (COPES) program compared to an audio-tutorial approach at the fourth grade level. The experimental group covered the COPES content but with audio-tutorial materials prepared by the investigator. No significant differences were found between the achievement scores of the experimental subjects and control subjects. A significant difference existed between the amount of time spent by the two groups on the sequence of activities. Children in the experimental group took significantly less time to complete the activities. (PS)
