Application of a Cooperative University/Middle School Model to Enhance Science Education Accountability.
Zigler, John T.; And Others
This study concerned whether a model designed to enchance educational accountability developed by university science educators could be used to enhance science educational accountability in a public middle school. Participants in the study were 39 teachers who attended a combined summer/inservice institute in the summer of 1973 at Ball State University. The inservice followup project involved 14 participants who lived within a 75 mile radius of the university and concerned applying the knowledge, skills, and model gained during the summer institute and then reporting the results. Participants developed instructional units consisting of specific performance objectives, pre- posttests, and teaching strategies appropriate for meeting the needs of the students in their local school systems. Statistical analysis of the pre- posttests provided evidence concerning the amount of learning that had taken place. Additional data were obtained by applying a t-test to individual paired pre- posttest scores. Results indicated that statistically significant learning by students had taken place using the model and that this model could be applied where educational accountability is important. (Author/BR)
