Gott, R. and Roberts, R. (2004) 'A written test for procedural understanding : a way forward for assessment in the UK science curriculum ?', Research in science & technological education., 22 (1). pp. 5-21.
A recent UK House of Commons report on Science 14-19 identified problems with coursework and argued for a greater emphasis on teaching and assessment of scientific literacy. This paper describes a written test for procedural understanding, given to 15 year olds, that addresses both of these issues. Comparisons are made between the scores on a written test of procedural understanding with both assessments made of subject knowledge and pupil accounts of investigations. The potential advantages of assessing procedural understanding by written tests are discussed.
