Lucas, Paul M.
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Ashland University
This study utilized a mixed-method design in order to investigate the alignment of secondary science teachers' instructional methodologies and their homework designs. Surveys were distributed to educators from a Center for Ocean Sciences Excellence Education (COSEE) database. Coding rubrics were developed to categorize the participants' responses to a series of open-ended questions. Chi-square tests were utilized in the determination of the degree of association between the participants' instructional methodologies and their homework designs. Overall, no statistically significant association was discovered between the two variables. Likewise, a statistically significant association for alignment, based on various demographic characteristics of the participants, was also unable to be determined.
