Implications of the Results of the IEA Science Project for the Teaching of Science in Australia.
Rosier, Malcolm J.
The aim of this paper was to set forth some of the results from the International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement (IEA) Science Project, and discuss their bearing on the teaching of science in Australian schools. The following factors are considered in this paper: (1) the influence of home background, (2) sex differences, (3) differences between metropolitan and non-metropolitan schools, (4) differences between government and non-government schools, and (5) the learning conditions associated with high science achievement. The populations measured, the method of analysis, the selection of criterion variables and a discussion about each variable are presented. Flow charts, data tables and references are also included in the report. An annotated list of available IEA (Australia) Reports is also found in the document. (EB)
