Validation Report for the Title IV-C Health Through Science Project, 1979-80.
McLean, James E.; And Others
Three objectives were identified regarding the Health Through Science Project, a comprehensive K-12 health project designed to increase student knowledge and understanding of health topic. Topics composing the core curriculum of the project were nutrition, safety, family living skills, personal hygiene and health, and human reproduction. Upon full implementation of the project, students were expected to achieve gains in health knowledge statistically higher than those made by non-participating students. This report concludes that such objectives were achieved beyond the expected levels. Experimental students outperformed control students at each of the five levels and at each grade. Experimental students also exhibited a statistically significant increase in health knowledge. (Author/GK)
