A Summative Evaluation of "Concepts in Science." TVOntario, Evaluation and Project Research Report No. 2-1989-90.
"Concepts in Science" is the title given to a group of 17 related miniseries produced for senior science students. This report presents the results of the summative evaluation of this series. The series explored important concepts in three areas of study: biology; physics; and chemistry. Each series consists of six 10-minute animated programs. The evaluation was based on three different sources of information, including a survey of teacher opinion, case studies of classroom use, and a survey of student opinion. The first chapter of this report provides background information on the series; the second chapter presents the results of a survey conducted among members of the Science Teachers' Association of Ontario. The third chapter reports case studies and examines the impact of the programs on students. The final chapter summarizes the main conclusions of the evaluation and discusses the implications for future science programming. Appendices include: (1) series titles; (2) videotape sales; (3) respondent characteristics; (4) objectionable elements; and (5) comments. (YP)
