Translation and Amendment of Zorns Instrument for the Description and Evaluation of Science Programs for Secondary Schools (A Field Study)

Auther : Abdullah J. Jarragh

The first purpose of the present study was translating the English version of Zorns instrument for description and evaluation science programs for secondary schools into Arabic. The second purpose was amending the previous instrument to be appropriate to the new developments in science programs construction as well as its usability in describing and evaluating secondary school science programs. The third purpose was identifying the validity, reliability and objectivity of the amended instrument before utilizing it in this study. The fourth purpose was determining the new criteria values for the amended instruments items according to jury (study sample) responses.

The amended instrument includes seven areas for describing or evaluating a scinece program; as follows: Objectives, Content, Instructional Materials, Teaching Methods, Scientific and Processing Skills, Evaluating Methods, and Relation to Other School Levels.

The results of the study showed that there was a great agreement among the jury members on the importance of the amended instruments items. The chi square test also revealed that all instruments items, except two of them, were significant at level of 0.05, which clearly indicated again that jury members viewed those items as crucial for the amended instrument.

The study ended with several recommendations for researchers and secondary science program planners, as well as, certain related studies were suggested to be conducted in the future.
