Windsor, Sarah; Bailey, Jack
Teaching Science, v62 n1 p43-53 Mar 2016
Year 11 chemistry students from three schools in the Sunshine Coast Region of Education Queensland carried out a choice of five experiments aligned with their school curriculum on campus at the University of the Sunshine Coast and in their own school classrooms. Significant improvements in science learning were observed in student post-test quiz scores compared to pre-test results. One cohort increased their theoretical knowledge scores from a pre-test average of 13% to a posttest average of 66%. Another cohort increased their practical knowledge scores from a pre-test average of 44% to a post-test average of 61%.
