An Analysis of Factors Successful in the Implementation of Innovative Science Programs in the Elementary and Secondary Rural Schools. Final Report.
Selser, Will L; Milliken, Don Q.
Presented is a final report designed to analyze factors successful in the implementation of innovative science programs in elementary and secondary rural schools in Missouri. Thirty elementary schools in a 25 county area were studied and data gathered via multiple choice questionnaires and personal interviews. Thirty-one secondary schools were randomly selected from those located in the 25 counties comprising the northeast corner of Missouri. A Basic Secondary Questionnaire was given to 65 secondary teachers, with 34 being randomly selected from this group to complete an in-depth teacher interview. Principals and/or superintendents of the participating secondary schools also completed a Secondary Administrative Questionnaire. Teacher and administrator factors were identified as affecting implementation of innovative programs. Data and results are presented separately for each of the two major educational levels. Copies of the questionnaires used are included in the appendix of the report. (PEB)
