Abstract or Summary
  • The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of providing behavioral objectives prior to instruction on the achievement of students in a one-semester college general chemistry course and to determine the effect of providing behavioral objectives of selected chemistry experiments in the acquisition of achievement associated with laboratory work. The population consisted of 244 students enrolled in 12 sections of General Chemistry 102 at Chulachomklao Royal Military Academy, Nakornayok, Thailand, during the second semester of 1990. Twelve sections were assigned at random to three different treatments and one control group. Students in group I received behavioral objectives for both classroom and laboratory instruction. Students in group II received behavioral objectives for classroom instruction and non-behavioral objectives for laboratory instruction. Students in group III received non-behavioral objectives for classroom instruction and behavioral objectives for laboratory instruction. The control group received non-behavioral objectives for both classroom and laboratory instruction. A list of behavioral objectives at cognitive level was distributed to each student prior to the beginning of each unit during two four-week units of study. A one-way analysis of covariance was used to analyze the achievement test scores. Scheffe's test was used for multiple comparisons. The 0.05 level was used to determine the significance of the results. There was a significant difference in achievement between students in group I and the control group. There was a significant difference in achievement between students in group II and the control group. There was a significant difference in achievement between students in group III and the control group. It was concluded that providing students with behavioral objectives prior to instruction did significantly enhance achievement in chemistry, as compared with providing students with non-behavioral objectives prior to instruction in both classroom and laboratory instruction. This conclusion was limited to the Chulachomklao Royal Military Academy, Thailand and any similar situation and groups that may exist.
