Abstract Title: Assessment AP Physics Laboratory Investigations
Abstract: This talk will introduce the Science Practices as a guide to describe the knowledge and skills that students should learn and demonstrate through laboratory investigations in the AP Physics 1 and 2 courses. A key element of the assessment of laboratory investigations in the new courses is the process of scientific argumentation: the justifications of claims by using evidence and reasoning. The discussion will include examples of how the lab-based questions on the 2015 AP Exam were assessed.
