The Effects of a Concerns-Based Implementation Plan on the Achievement of Elementary Science Students.
Pratt, Harold; And Others
Recently the framework of the Concerns-Based Adoption Model was used to guide the implementation of a revised elementary science program in grades 3-6 in the Jefferson County (Colorado) Public Schools. This paper explores how student achievement on a locally developed, criterion-referenced test is related to the length of time the revised science program has been in use. Three groups of students drawn from schools in three phases of the implementation were identified based on reading scores. The data indicate a definite trend toward increased student achievement in those classrooms where the innovation had been implemented for a longer time period. (Author/MLF)
