This project was concerned with the effects of teaching activities in lessons where self-paced materials were used; with associations between teaching activities and cognitive and affective outcomes; with relationships between teachers' beliefs about teaching and teaching activities and pupil outcomes; with pupils' perceptions about a self-paced learning environment; and with associations between pupils' perceptions and observed teaching activities and outcomes. Data were obtained from 20 classes containing 326 pupils; 12 of these classes were taught by student teachers and 8 by experienced teachers. The classes of the student teachers were allocated to four different treatments: (1) use of Australian Science Education Project (ASEP) materials only; (2) ASEP materials plus a pre-structuring teacher overview and a film; (3) ASEP materials with mid-structuring lessons and the film; (4) ASEP materials plus post-structuring and the film. The eight experienced teachers used ASEP materials but were not assigned to treatments. Students were given attitude and achievement pre- and posttests. Forty lessons were videotaped and analyzed. Results are discussed in terms of the nature of the learning environment, variation in the environment of the classrooms, and the teachers' structuring behaviors. (DT)
