Smail, Barbara; Kelly, Alison – Research in Science and Technological Education, 1984
Eleven-year-old secondary school students (N=2065) were given a variety of attitude and achievement tests. Although both boys and girls had positive attitudes toward science, boys preferred studying physical science while girls preferred studying biology. Implications of these and other findings are discussed. (Author/JN)

Iyiola, Ayodele Olayemi; Wilkinson, William J. – Research in Science and Technological Education, 1984
Compared the outcomes achieved by students taking biology courses based on either the revised/updated West African Examination Council (WAEC) syllabus or a WAEC-developed alternative syllabus which emphasizes relationships to agriculture, nutrition, and other practical topics. Also examined factors associated with these outcomes, including teacher…

Hodson, D. – Research in Science and Technological Education, 1984
Investigated the effect on student performance of changes in question structure and sequence on a GCE 0-level multiple-choice chemistry test. One finding noted is that there was virtually no change in test reliability on reducing the number of options (from five to per test item). (JN)

Tamir, Pinchas – Research in Science and Technological Education, 1983
Results from Biology Cognitive Preference Inventory taken by grade 12 Jewish (N=406) and Arab (N=297) biology majors revealed similarities between cognitive preferences, achievement, and background variables. Reports that, in spite of substantial cultural and home differences, both groups became oriented toward principles/questioning rather than…

Rowell, Jack A.; Dawson, Chris J. – Research in Science and Technological Education, 1984
Investigated the efficacy of an instructional program designed to induce students to construct a mental scheme in which experimental design and natural experiments are understood as facets of the same problems and which incorporates a general solution procedure applicable to both. Results show a highly significant posttest achievement by the…

Azencot, Moshe; Blum, Abraham – Research in Science and Technological Education, 1984
Compared the performance of teachers and students on the Field Experiences Achievement Test with results obtained from seventh-grade students who took the FEAT during its development and validation. Results indicate that tests developed for student use may also be used in inservice teacher education programs. (JN)

Smail, Barbara; Kelly, Alison – Research in Science and Technological Education, 1984
Results from three cognitive tests revealed few sex differences among 11-year-old students (N=2065). Neither question style (multiple-choice or structured) nor content (masculine or feminine) has any great effect on sex differences in performance. However, boys performed markedly better than girls on tests of spatial ability and mechanical…

Metcalfe, Robert J. Alban; And Others – Research in Science and Technological Education, 1984
Investigated effectiveness of teaching one element of a science syllabus using drama in place of conventional practical work. No statistically significant differences were detected in factual recall, but significantly more "meaningful" learning appeared to have taken place when drama was used. Psychological and educational implications…
