A Comparison of the Performance of ISCS and Non-ISCS Ninth-Grade Science Students on Several Piaget-Type Tasks.
Teates, Thomas Gilbert
Reported is a study to determine whether 249 ninth-grade students completing the third year of the Intermediate Science Curriculum Study (ISCS) instructional sequence performed differently on 19 conservation tasks than did 239 non-ISCS ninth-grade students. The tasks were presented via 35-mm color slides and a tape-recorded protocol. Students in both groups were classified as high, medium, or low ability on the basis of their performance on standard mental ability or educational development tests. A student was considered to be a conserver if he selected the correct response for all of the tasks in the test relative to a given type of conservation. Data were analyzed using analysis of variance and scalogram analysis. There was no significant difference at the .05 level of significance in the performance of ISCS and non-ISCS students on the task tests and there was no significant interaction between treatment and ability level. There was a difference at the .05 level in the performance of students of different ability levels. (Author/EB)
