Abstract

Besides providing students with the essential life skills, Life Science Course Curriculum should also provide a basis to social sciences, and science and technology courses. In this study, it is intended to reveal the prediction power of the learning level of life science course in science and technology course. According to the result of the study, grades of the third grade life science course are significant in the prediction of student's grades of the fourth grade science and technology course. Students' grades of 57% of fourth grade science and technology course can be explained with third grade life science course's grade. Likewise, student's achievement test scores of third grade life science course are significant in the prediction of student's achievement tests of the fourth grade science and technology course. %47 of fourth grade science and technology course academic achievement scores can be explained with third grade life science course achievement test scores. Also, tetrachoric correlation analysis results show that third grade Life Science Course Curriculum has shown consistency with the attainments of the fourth grade Science and Technology Course Curriculum. In other words, the results of the study present clues that the third grade life science course is helpful to prepare the students to the fourth grade science and technology course
