The Effects of an Individualized, Self-Paced Science Program on Selected Teacher, Classroom, and Student Variables - ISCS Level One.
Nieft, Jerry Wayne
Reported is an assessment of the effectiveness of Intermediate Science Curriculum Study (ISCS) Level I materials on student achievement, student attitudes toward science and student perceptions of teachers. The students of teachers from an ISCS inservice institute and six non-institute participants were administered: (1) the "Student Inventory" which measured student perceived teacher warmth, demand, and use of intrinsic motivation; (2) the "Classroom Activity Chekclist" measuring student perceived teacher roles, student participation, use of textbooks and references, design and use of examinations, and laboratory activities; (3) the "Scientific Attitude Inventory;" and (4) a set of author-made achievement tests. The study revealed that ISCS Level I materials performed as expected with regard to changes in the character of classroom activity. Contrary to expectations, however, no significant differences were found between gain scores of the two groups on the Student Inventory or on the Scientific Attitude Inventory. (EB)
