Evaluation Report for the Iowa-ASSIST Implementation Effort, 1974-1975.
Wilson, John T.; And Others
This report evaluates the Iowa-ASSIST (Alternative Strategies and Services for Improving Science Teaching) program for assisting schools and communities with improvement of science teaching and science offerings. Program activities that are evaluated include the implementation and revision of major science curriculum programs in Iowa, and inservice teacher workshops designed to provide an introduction to the content, organization, and teaching strategies which characterize a given program. A sample of teacher participants was questioned on the objectives, content, and effectiveness of the workshops. The results of the data analysis led to the conclusion that the workshops were quite effective in fulfilling their objectives. Summative viewpoints on the program are given from both an advocate's view and an adversary's view. (MH)
