Assessment of inquiry skills
In this symposium, the testing of scientific inquiry competence with paper-and-pencil tests in large scale assessments was presented from different points of view. The evaluation of the German Educational Standards was explained using the example of scientific inquiry in comparison to the evaluation of Standards in Switzerland. While in Switzerland the model of competence was evaluated before standards for science were defined so data from the evaluation could be used for this purpose, the standards in Germany are normative standards which were formulated based on theory and will be assessed in 2012 after a pilot study in 2009. The underlying models of competence as well as first results from studies in both countries are presented in this paper.
