A Study of Parents' Attitudes Toward Supplemental Report Cards Which Identify Objectives Accomplished by ISCS Students.
Bardsley, Harry Vincent, Jr.
The study was designed to measure attitude change of parents of Intermediate Science Curriculum Study (ISCS) students by providing supplemental reports which assessed the behavioral objectives accomplished by the students. The population involved in the study consisted of 385 seventh-grade ISCS students at Roosevelt Junior High School, Williamsport, Pennsylvania, with the treatment group comprised of all of one teacher's students and the control group comprised of the parents of another teacher's students. The Individual Report of Accomplishments in Science (IRAS) was used during the six marking periods and followed up by administering an Additional Reporting Questionnaire and a Likert scale to the parents. The research design was to posttest the parents' responses to the Additional Reporting Questionnaire using chi-square. The results indicated that the IRAS systems did produce significantly more favorable attitudes toward communication of student accomplishment and a more favorable attitude toward the science program.
