Science Process Skills
Broadly transferable intellectual skills, appropriate to all scientific endeavors -- includes basic process skills (e.g., observing, inferring, measuring, communicating, classifying, predicting, using time-space relations, using numbers) and integrated process skills (e.g., controlling variables, defining operationally, formulating hypotheses, interpreting data, experimenting, formulating models). Prior to 2004, the Identifier "Science a Process Approach" was used to index documents describing a curriculum espousing the learning and use of these skills.
