The writer feels that the teaching of electronics and electricity in the junior high school is a relatively new concept. This may be due to the ever increasing number of electronics devices being manufactured today and the need for electronic technicians to maintain these devices and assist the scientist in his work. It is further felt that electronics and electricity instructions will become a necessary part of the junior high school curriculum.
Changes in the high school curriculum lead the writer to believe that a set of experiments, test questions, and techniques are some of the most important needs in the electronics curruculum on the junior high level. This study arises out of the need to evaluate the junior high school program, because electronics and electricity has come to play the largest and one of the most important roles in the present world. Electronics and electricity is present wherever we go and when we see it in many places, it is obvious it is being used.
The purpose of this study was threefold: (1) To provide information, knowledge, and skills that will be useful in life situations of occupational, recreational, and socio-cultural significance, (2) to develop a set of experiments pertinent to current products, practices, and techniques of industry, and (3) to develop a set of test questions for evaluating skills and knowledge gained.
The study was limited to eighth and ninth grade pupils of ten selected schools which offer electronics and electricity in the industrial arts departments of the Dallas Independent School District.
