by S. O. Adodo

There are certain issues which the teachers, examiners and evaluators must address during basic science interaction. These are issues on the learners which may include learner's background scientific knowledge of the concept to be taught, their age, personality factors, problem solving styles and attitude. These issues affect not only the student learning outcome in science and technology but possess influence on their academic endeavors. The paper examines some physiological issues of learners and educators desirability for the teaching and evaluating Science education. The paper assumes it will be skyblue clear if Science educators are able to think of and priorities psychological paradigms that could be set as standard in the teaching, learning and evaluating Basic Science and Technology lessons. This study is purposed to examine what the pre-service and in-service science teachers prioritise as observable psychological variables in the teaching and evaluating Basic Science and Technology Education and Correlates their perception of the actual and expected psychological desirability in evaluating science education. The study will be of benefit to the educators, the students and the curriculum developers as it will provide to the educators the students' learning style information that can improve the teaching and learning of Science at the basic level. The instrument for the study is a 20 items psychological profile of Science Education Questionnaire (PPSEQ). It was administered on 240 In-service teachers and 240 pre-service teachers. Though a significant difference was observed between the two educators prioritised desirability, personality, maturation, memory, competence, interest/attitude, motivation application, critical thinking etc were highly rated or ranked by both the IST and PST. These psychological issues which needed to be diagnosed and remediated for when they seem to be affecting student negatively were considered essential and could be set as standard for effective Science teaching and evaluation.
Keywords: educators prioritized desirability, students' psychological profiles, basic science interaction.
