A Study of Self-Concept, Attitudes Toward Science and Achievement on a Sample of Seventh Grade ISCS Students Versus Seventh Grade Students in a Non-Individualized Science Class.
Martinez-Perez, Luis Armando
This study examined specific student characteristics in seventh-grade students and attempted to make comparisons of these characteristics as a function of their science course program. A total of 109 students participated in Intermediate Science Curriculum Study (ISCS) classes and 106 students participated in non-individualized science classes. The student's self-concept was measured by the Piers-Harris Children's Self-Concept Scale and attitudes toward science by a modified version of the Scientific Attitude Inventory. The Pearson product-moment correlation coefficient was calculated between pairs of variables, but none were found significant at the .001 level. A multivariate t-test was used to test equality of means for each one of four variables. The mean teacher grading for ISCS students was significantly lower than in the case of the non-ISCS teacher. No other significant differences were found at the .001 level. (Author/EB)
