Four years ago Helgeson and his co-workers at the ERIC/SMEAC center at Ohio State reported that the goals in science education were in a period of major transition (Helgeson, et al., 1977). Three years ago NSTA published a working paper entitled, Science Education: Accomplishments and Needs, in which new goals for the discipline were identified (NSTA, 1978). Recently the NSTA Research Committee completed a research project - one facet of which determined the degree of agreement about such major changes in goals as well as an indication of the nature of new goals (Yager, 1980).
