The Effect of Video Laboratory Instructions on Successful Completion of Fifth Grade Hands-On Science Activities
by Fisher, Megan, M.A.C.I., Caldwell University, 2019, 73; 13879792
Abstract (Summary)

The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) are new science education standards that describe the major practices, crosscutting concepts, and disciplinary core ideas that all students should be familiar with by the end of high school. In addition, NGSS provides an outline of how these practices, concepts, and ideas should be developed across grade levels (Quinn, 2012). This teacher researcher questioned if student completion of laboratory reports would be more successful with the aid of video instructions to reference. She selected three methods of data collection for this study including a Likert Scale survey, rubrics to score lab reports, and an open-ended questionnaire. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to determine the extent to which video instructions connected to lab activities motivated student achievement for mastery of a science unit of study among fifth grade students. Through these collection methods, data revealed that video instructions can be beneficial to students throughout a laboratory activity.
