Since, science is a vast subject and it is compulsory to design such an assessment that could ensure achievement of subject value, practice, research and communication outcomes. Thus, this assessment will include different activities and tasks to target each of these aforementioned goals in terms of learning outcomes.
For learning and gaining expertise in any particular subject it is always important to develop interest in the subject. In the beginning of the session science teacher will ask students to write an informal essay on the topic, “Reasons for Selecting Science as a Major Subject in the Future”. This technique will help students use their imaginative and thinking power, because while writing essay they will get chance to recognize importance of scientific studies and scope of the subject in the professional career (Haines, 2004). Additionally, teachers will also get an idea about each student’s interest and dedication for the subject. This will also help teacher to design final assessment activities more effectively with respect to students’ interest and choices ...Show more
