Evaluating the Long Term Effects of Teacher Enhancement.
Lawrenz, Frances; Huffman, Douglas; Lavoie, Beth
This document reports on a 6-year study of science education reform, the Scope, Sequence, and Coordination (SS&C) Project. The reform included teacher enhancement activities as well as curricular materials and was designed to help science students achieve the National Research Council's Science Standards (1995). The two components of the study were comparing students who had participated in the reform movement with those who had not, and investigating the long-term effects of the reform movement. Results indicate that overall, the reform effort was successful in making changes in science instruction. Recommendations for effective implementation through teacher enhancement efforts and for longitudinal evaluations of teacher enhancement projects are also included. (Contains 24 references and appendices with data tables.) (YDS)
