Retention Studies Since 1960.
Young, Darrell D.
The purpose of this study was to examine several of the leading journals in science education in order to determine how many of the research studies reported contained followups of a retention nature. Four journals were examined: (1) Journal of Research in Science Teaching, (2) Science Education, (3) Journal of College Science Teaching, and (4) School Science and Mathematics. Results of the survey indicate that few studies are performed that make any attempt to continue their work beyond the close of the experiment. The survey does clearly indicate that more and more researchers are continuing to followup on the results of their research. (Author/EB)
