Same-task group work (15 min) on analysing a worksheet used for recording data collected during an enquiry-based learning activity. This worksheet was created to go along with an enquiry on how pulse rate varies with exercise. In small groups have a look at the worksheet and discuss the following questions:
- What do you think of the layout of the worksheet?
- How easy/difficult to you think the students will find it to use?
- Is there any information on the sheet that you think shouldn't be or anything missing that you think should be included?
- Do the students require any prior knowledge to ensure that they complete the sheet accurately? If so, how would you make sure that the students had this prior knowledge?
Same-task group work (15 min) on designing a worksheet to assist students with data analysis. Design a follow on worksheet that scaffolds the students next steps in processing the data that they have collected. It should enable them to draw meaningful conclusions that link back to the learning intensions/objectives.
Some ideas that participants may come up with:
- need to check that students know how to calculate averages
- include as much detail as possible about units (beats per minute)
- show a worked example on the first line of the table with realistic data e.g.
It is important that worksheets are designed so as to scaffold the student's learning and guide them towards meeting the learning intention/s successfully. It has to give them the best chance of making sense of the data that they have collected.
