Information about the questionnaire of the third and final round of the PROFILES Curricular Delphi Study on Science Education Dear Participants,
Thank you very much for your participation in the first and second round of the PROFILES Curricular Delphi Study on Science Education. On the basis of the responses you provided in the course of the second round, we are now able to identify specific features as well as differentiated views in the opinions of the experts regarding desirable science education(1). Moreover, we are through quantitative analyses able to gain more valuable insights about particular priorities as well as reality estimations in the opinions of the experts.
We would now like to ask you to take part in the third and final round of the PROFILES Curricular Delphi Study on Science Education.
On the basis of hierarchical cluster analyses, we developed from the responses you offered in part II of the round 2 questionnaire three concepts regarding your suggestions about desirable science education. These concepts are subject of the third and last round of the PROFILES Curricular Delphi Study.
The questionnaire of the third round is about your individual assessment of these concepts.
Analogously to round 2, we would like to ask you to mark on the given scales the importance you assign to the particular concepts and the extent of their realization in practice. Please estimate these aspects regarding different educational levels.
You can find a detailed overview of the clusters forming the concepts and a description of the concepts attached to this questionnaire.
If you are interested in the results of the second round of the PROFILES Curricular Delphi Study on Science Education, please visit our PROFILES homepage where we will provide a detailed overview of the results of the second round.
Thank you very much your cooperation and your support.
(1) Reminder: The Curricular Delphi Study on Science Education addresses the following general questions:
- What aspects regarding science education are in general considered desirable and pedagogically meaningful?
- Which experiences should be facilitated in science-related educational practice, which competences and qualifications should be enhanced and which scientific fields, concepts, topics and perspectives should the individual have dealt with?
Please think of adolescents at the end of compulsory education (around the age of 15/16).
