This study was carried out to identify the level of Science and Technology student teachers’ science processskills and to determine how efficient I diagrams are in developing these skills. The corpus of the study wasconsisted of 40 science and technology student teachers who were having Instructional Technologies andMaterial Design course during the 2009-10 academic years at Amasya University, Faculty of Education. Thestudy was conducted as a basic experimental design. A science process skills test was applied on the studentteachers as pre-test and post-test, then the points they got from each test were compared. During the study, thestudent teachers developed I-diagrams on science topics with the guidance of their supervisors. The resultsrevealed that the student teachers had problems with the pre-tests, and especially with the integrated processskill. At the end of the study it was observed that the student teachers’ skills on developing I-diagrams wereincreased as well as their integrated process skills problems were disappeared. Accordingly, it was concludedthat I-diagrams were important for the acquisition and development of science process skills.
