Assessing Science Inquiry Skills

Developing strategies to map science inquiry skills and assess students learning outcomes.

How can I assess science inquiry skills?
How can I develop practical activities to focus on planning investigations?

Science inquiry skills have always been an important aspect in science classes, but historically we have not paid sufficient attention to how they can be strategically developed, nor how they can be assessed. More often they are assumed, as part of traditional practical work.

In this workshop you will:

  • participate in practical activities targeted at primary and lower secondary school
  • identify and target different investigative skills
  • develop assessment rubrics
  • use a framework for the development and assessment of science inquiry skills.

Date: Thursday, 12th December

Time: 1pm – 4.30pm

Location: Deakin University, Burwood Campus

Cost: $150      


This is the inaugural workshop in the new Deakin STEME Professional Learning Hub… please check for further events in 2020.
