Next Generation Science Standards

Implementation in Liberal Studies at CSU Bakersfield

the project
The Project
  • Increase abilities of pre-service K-8 teachers in knowledge and practice of NGSS
  • 2 main components
    • SCI 325A: Integrated Science from a life science perspective
      • Capstone science course in Liberal studies
    • EDTE 310: Early field experience in teaching
  • Goal: Integrate and align content and practice
content sci 325a integrated science
Content: SCI 325A Integrated Science
  • Adjusted course content to more closely align with NGSS
    • Including small-scale introduction of Engineering principles
  • Added module on Academic Literacy
  • Revised lesson plan assignment
    • Replaced CA Science standards with NGSS practices, crosscutting concepts & performance expectations
    • Peer review with revision
    • Academic language component
edte 310 early field experience
EDTE 310: Early field experience
  • Change venue and verb
    • From in-school school observation to After school teaching
    • Lesson-plan assignment aligned to SCI 325A
      • Ideally, extension of 325A lesson plan
      • Practice: students teach the lesson they designed
        • With opportunity for revision
  • Teaching skills and Abilities
    • 25 item pre-post Science Teacher Efficacy Belief Instrument
      • Asks specifically about teaching practices
  • Content knowledge
    • 46 item Pre-post course Knowledge survey based on NGSS and SCI 325A content coverage
      • 12 practice only items; 17 content only, 17 practice & content
      • Composite measure: Average change (post-pre)
  • All results on SCI 325A students
    • EDTE 310 students excluded because n<5
  • Each question analyzed individually for Students taking SCI 325A (Wilcoxon sign-rank test)
  • Two items showed significant changes:
    • “When teaching Science I usually welcome student questions” showed a significant change towards the “Disagree” end of the scale (p=0.046)
    • “I know the step necessary to teach Science concepts effectively” showed a significant change toward the “Agree” scale (p=0.031)
  • 23 remaining questions showed no change
results ngss knowledge survey
Results: NGSS Knowledge Survey

Mean ±95% Confidence interval

Overall, p<0.000005; Practice only p<0.05; Content only & PE p<0.0000005

more ngss
  • Multiple regression analyses:
    • Independent analysis for each question subset
    • Prior GPA, Exam performance, and Lab performance as Independent variables
  • 1 Significant effect
    • Lab performance on practice-only question subset. (b=0.02, p=0.042)
