Investigations in Science Education, v10 n1 1984
Presented are abstracts and abstractors' analyses of seven studies related to science instruction and mathematics and three studies related to achievement. Analyses in the area of instruction are on studies of: teacher interventions in elementary science laboratory groups; variables accounting for success in an undergraduate science education course; the extended discretion approach to high school biology investigations; diagnostic-prescriptive teaching; the effects of the use of hand-held calculators; the effects of process instruction on problem identification skills; and the effects of Piagetian level on solving proportionality problems. Analyses related to achievement are on studies of: the prediction of achievement and success in an audiotutorial (AT) biology program; the effects of the components of logical reasoning on physics achievement; and differences in achievement of inner city students. Responses by two authors to analyses of their studies are included. (JN)
