About this Unit
The purpose of this unit is for students to be informed of different types of diagnostic, formative, and summative assessment strategies used in primary science contexts. Examination of assessment methods and resources will help teachers develop a comprehensive philosophy of assessment in primary science. Students will develop skills in adapting instructional units to incorporate a research-based assessment system, become familiar with strategies to analyse assessment data, and design interventions in response to assessment data.
