This booklet summarizes the findings of the survey of science attainment carried out in 1993 by a team of researchers at Jordanhill Campus, Strathclyde University. The assessment tasks were used with a sample of pupils, selected to be representative of all pupils in Scotland, at three stages--primary 4, primary 7, and secondary 2. The report presents examples of the actual tasks used with pupils and their responses, covering the topics of planning/collecting evidence, recording and presenting, interpreting and evaluating, and knowledge and understanding. Other topics include use of language in science, range of pupil performance, comparisons between boys and girls, and science in the school. (Includes further readings and a list of AAP publications.)
