Science Library of Test Items. Volume Twenty-Three. Geology (Part One). Free Response Testing Program.
Hopley, Ken; And Others
The first of several planned volumes of Free Response Test Items contains geology questions developed by the Assessment and Evaluation Unit of the New South Wales Department of Education. Two additional geology volumes and biology and chemistry volumes are in preparation. The questions in this volume were written and reviewed by practicing teachers having a speciality in geology. The content coverage does not follow any syllabus but represents material for use by teachers in devising teaching and assessment programs. The free response questions require word or statement answers, drawings, or labeling concerning weathering; soils; stream, coastal, glacial, wind, and other forms of erosion and deposition; and structures formed by sedimentation. Many questions are based on diagrams, maps, tables, and other illustrations of geological features, processes, and experiments. No answer keys are given. (CM)
