This study examined the implementation of brain compatible learning strategies at Soddy Daisy High School and the effects these methodologies had on the Tennessee Science Gateway Exam. The population included students in Biology 1 during the 2002-2003 school year as well as biology teachers. The goal of the study was to determine the amount of gain achieved by students taking Biology 1 including student achievement, student attitudes, and the methodologies of the educators. Instrumentation included a pretest and posttest, results of the course grading, and a student survey for the experimental group. The researcher found statistical significant evidence that brain compatible learning enabled students to have success on criteria referenced standardized testing at any reasonable confident level.
