The Ability of Teacher-Identified Noncollege Bound High School Biology Students to Identify and Apply Selected Princepts of Biology.
Shipe, Richard Allen
The purpose of this study was to investigate the degree to which teacher identified noncollege bound high school biology students have developed the ability to identify and to apply selected princepts of biology. To investigate this a multiple-choice test was developed that measured the ability to identify and apply selected princepts of biology. The test was prepared in two parts: Part 1 was a measure of the ability to apply selected princepts of biology; and Part 2 was a measure of the ability to identify selected princepts of biology. Nineteen high schools randomly selected in Connecticut participated in the study in 1972. The study concluded that noncollege bound high school biology students in Connecticut did not develop adequately the ability to identify and apply selected princepts of biology. When I.Q. is controlled as the adjusting variable, noncollege bound students in traditionally organized biology courses scored significantly higher on the test of ability to apply selected princepts of biology than students completing BSCS organized biology courses. Males have developed a significantly higher ability to identify selected princepts of biology than females. (Author/BR)
