What We've Learned about Assessing Hands-On Science.
Shavelson, Richard J.; Baxter, Gail P.
Educational Leadership, v49 n8 p20-25 May 1992
A recent study compared hands-on scientific inquiry assessment to assessments involving lab notebooks, computer simulations, short-answer paper-and-pencil problems, and multiple-choice questions. Creating high quality performance assessments is a costly, time-consuming process requiring considerable scientific and technological know-how. Improved instrumentation and staff development are essential. (MLH)
