Design/Procedure, Data Collection, Data Analysis, Evaluation, and Manipulative and Personal Skills. Students are charged to work collaboratively but with individual accountability and to pay attention to the ethical and environmental implications of the investigation. Not all laboratories must include all the above components, but each component must be assessed twice during the course (and teachers are encouraged to “address” each component multiple times).
