This collection of SAILS Inquiry and Assessment Units showcases the benefits of adopting inquiry approaches in classroom practice, exemplifies how assessment practices are embedded in inquiry lessons and illustrates the variety of assessment opportunities/processes available to science teachers. In particular, the units provide clear examples for teachers of how inquiry skills can be assessed, alongside content knowledge, scientific literacy and scientific reasoning and illustrate the benefits of various types of assessments. More specifically, the units presented show how evidence of student learning can be collected and evaluated through a variety of methods, e.g. classroom dialogue, teacher observation, presentations, peer-assessment, self-assessment, student artefacts, use of assessment rubrics, etc. These SAILS Units are presented so as to be informative for teachers, relevant to classroom practice and include illustrative examples of assessment items and criteria used to evaluate student learning.
