Abstract (Summary)
The following is quasi experimental study of Elementary School Technology Education (ESTE) and the potential to affect math test scores of 5thgrade students at River Heights Elementary School, Menomonie, Wisconsin after participation in a 6 day unit of instruction pertaining to electricity. Though the average difference between pretest and posttest scores increased, the change, when compared to the control group, with multiple regression analysis revealed a statistically significant increase in the scores of the control group over those of the experimental group. This was contrary to the hypothesis, but additional research is suggested to attempt to detect long term changes in student ability resulting from participation in ESTE.
