Abstract

This paper reports on a research study into the assessment of practical work at the upper high school level in Ireland. The principal aim of the study was to evaluate the effectiveness of a new assessment model for practicalwork, which involved the use of a visiting examiner. Data were gathered bythree means: a comparative analysis of the marks obtained on the written questions and performance in the practical assessment of over 350 students in each of chemistry and physics in 30 schools; an analysis using Bloom's Taxonomy of both the existing and the new models for assessing practical abilities; and the use of questionnaires with teachers and examiners involved in the study. The main finding was that the new model provided a reliable and valid assessment of a range of practical abilities, which was also economical of time and resources. Additionally, there was evidence of benefits tothe examiners and teachers involved in terms of their own professional development.
