Influencing College Chemistry Success through High School Chemistry Teaching
Tai, Robert H.; Sadler, Philip M.; Loehr, John F.
Science Education Review, v5 n4 p123-127 2006
The connection between high school chemistry pedagogical experiences and introductory college chemistry performance has been a topic researched in published science education literature since the 1920s. However, analysis techniques have limited the generalizability of these results. This review discusses the findings of a large-scale, multi-institutional research study addressing many of these previous limitations. The findings reveal that high school experiences are significantly associated with college performance. The implications indicate that high school chemistry teachers may have a positive impact in preparing their students for future success in introductory-level college chemistry.
