Woods, C. Sheldon; Scharmann, Lawrence C.
Electronic Journal of Science Education, v6 n2 Dec 2001
Examines factors involved in students' acceptance of evolutionary theory. A causal-comparative or ex post facto design was employed for the quantitative aspect. Concludes that there is a need to strive to provide learning opportunities that encourage high school students to find their own "place to stand" between what many perceive to be an "evolution vs. creation" choice.
