Avi Hofstein, Vincent N. Lunetta January 2004 Science Education v88 n1 p28-54

This article from Science Education is an analysis of previous scholarship on contemporary goals for science learning, current models of how students construct knowledge, and information about how teachers and students engage in science laboratory activities. This article discusses new methodologies for research and assessment that have been developed over the last 20 years and how these new techniques help researchers understand how laboratory resources are used, how students’ lab work is assessed, and how lab activities can be used by teachers to enhance intended learning outcomes.
