TLRP: Towards evidence-based practice in science education 1: Using diagnostic assessment to enhance learning, TLRP research briefing 1
Much research has been carried out on students’ understanding of key science ideas, but this has not led to marked improvement in teaching and learning. As a means of improving practice, banks of diagnostic questions, based on research, were developed for several core science topics. These were used to monitor students’ understanding of key science ideas, and to explore how the provision of research-based materials of this sort can influence teachers’ practices and students’ learning.
