This book deals with internal evaluation of in-laboratory science education programs and provides tools which can be used for evaluation purposes. However, it does not deal directly with the relationship of evaluation to external educational policy or funding. Testing is dealt with as part of the process of collecting data utilized in the assessment process. The main focus of our discussion is to provide a framework for the systematic development of an assessment strategy that will allow scientists involved in scientific inquiry teaching to assess the learning of their students.
