Ferguson, Peter D.; Fraser, Barry J.
Research in Science Education, v28 n4 p387-97 1998
Tasmanian students' (n=1,040) perceptions of the learning environment were collected in the final stages of primary school and again in the initial term in secondary school. First exposure to specialized science learning environments and teachers changed students' perceptions. Both school size and student gender were found to be influencing factors in some learning-environment dimension perceptions. Contains 27 references. (Author/WRM)
