Abstract

The objective was to compare the mean scores between pretest and posttest of biodiversity knowledge,environmental education, environmental conservation inspiration, environmental conservation behavior and to develop trainers who are able to transfer biodiversity knowledge to others. The quasi-experimental research was employed in 40 high school students at Chiang-Yuen School, Chiang-Yuen District,Mahasarakham Province. Participation-Appreciation-Influence-Control (PAIC) was conducted and it was integrated with Three Dimensional Evaluations employed in examining the participation and Four Dimensional Evaluations used for trainer role play evaluation. One-way ANOVA was used to examine the mean scores difference between three and four groups. They were collected by purposive sampling technique based on criteria of public mind and commitment to participate via the whole research process.


After PAIC was implemented, the results revealed that the mean scores of posttest of biodiversity knowledge, environmental education, environmental conservation inspiration, environmental conservation behavior and training achievement were higher than pretest with statistical significance (p < 0.01 for all aspects). Additionally, it also obtained the trainers who are able to transfer biodiversity knowledge to others.In present and future situations it was illustrated that mean scores were different with statistical significance (p < 0.01 and p < 0.01). Additionally with Four Dimensional Evaluation, the mean scores were different with statistical significance (p < 0.01).
