High School and College Student Perceptions of the Ozone Depletion Problem.
Groves, Fred; Pugh, Ava
This paper examines the knowledge of high school biology students (n=107), undergraduate elementary education majors (n=42), and graduate students in an advanced elementary science methods course (n=22) about ozone depletion. The questionnaire used contained 30 items pertaining to ozone depletion which were divided into three subscales: (1) results of ozone depletion; (2) causes of ozone depletion; and (3) ways to alleviate ozone depletion. Results are analyzed according to the different groups studied: suburban high school students, urban high school students, undergraduate students, and graduate students. (CCM)
