Reflection: Continuous Assessment Electric Energy Transfer Investigation - Day 2 - Section 3: Interview

 

The above interview is a good example of capturing student understanding, albeit in a formative way. This student does a nice job summarizing how the team has progressed, though most of his comments are about the mechanical aspects of the apparatus. This is obviously important and doubtlessly authentic - real scientists grapple with these issues every day - but also reveals that the current focus is on logistics and not ideas. While this is appropriate, I hope that at some point in the process, students will reveal a deeper understanding about the transfer of electric energy into other forms.
