Current Status of Assessment of Experimental Skills in Science Education: A Perspective from India

Venkata Krishna Bayineni, Kruthika BS


Experimental skills are very important for science students, and it is necessary to visualize them by evaluating student achievement. It is appropriate to acquire experimental skills by carrying out science experiments in labs. Testing the students' experimental skills involves assessing their capacity to use their knowledge in practical ways. Although it is obvious that practical abilities in science are important, it is unclear exactly what these skills are and how they might be most efficiently and accuraters be assisted in understanding the function of practical work and necessary to embrace more recent ally evaluated. Engaging student in high-quality practical work at a younger age can aid in the development of important skills, a thorough knowledge of scientific inquiry, and conceptual comprehension. It is crucial that teacheternative teaching and evaluation techniques. This article reviews how experimental skills are currently assessed and the importance of evaluating these skills in science.
