The understanding of science by students is considered by science educators to be a worthwhile goal in the teaching of science. Attempts have been made to achieve this goal in the various curricula that have been developed, and the Biological Sciences Curriculum Study is one of these curricula. Several studies have been attempted to measure the understanding of science as a student outcome in a particular course such as BSCS Biology. In most studies the Test On Understanding Science (TOUS) (1) was the most common instrument used.
