Review of Research in Science Education for the Year 1971.
Anderson, Ronald D.
The tenth paper of the Research Review Series, commissioned by the Science and Mathematics Education Information Analysis Center in cooperation with the National Association for Research in Science Teaching, provides an analysis of the documents released in 1971 which deal with science education research. The review is intended to: (1) provide a characterization of the current state-of-the-art and an examination of its key strengths and weaknesses as a guide for future research, (2) present a portrayal of the findings and conclusions of the research conducted in 1971, and (3) serve as a reference to studies conducted on a particular topic during 1971. Tables provide a categorization of the studies by topic, source, school level, and methodology employed. After outlining the reviewing procedure and general characteristics of the research, an analysis of the studies, illustrated by selected reports, is presented under the following headings: Instructional Procedures and Materials; Learning and Learner; Teaching and the Teacher; Methodological Studies; and Miscellaneous Topics. The bibliography contains 378 citations, mainly journal articles and unpublished doctoral dissertations. (JR)
