SOLO and the Nature of Science and SOLO Taxonomy SOLO and the Nature of Science and SOLO Taxonomy Presentation Transcript

  • SOLO onNature of Science What am I doing? How well am I doing it? What’s my next step?
  • SOLO on Nature of ScienceSOLO, or the Structure of Observed Learning Outcomes describes fivestages of understanding of a subject. It can be used for assessmentand to design learning activities. This taxonomy was developed by JohnBiggs and Kevin Collis.SOLO enables the learner to be in control of their learning and workout what their next step is. There are many examples of how to useSOLO on the web and links are at the end of this presentation.I will briefly talk you through the different stages here, then show youhow they can be applied to the Nature of Science and assessment. What am I doing? How well am I doing it? What’s my next step?
  • SOLO StagesNot sure what is really going on. May have a fewideas but nothing is connected and/or is lacking inrelevance. What am I doing? How well am I doing it? What’s my next step?
  • SOLOStages Might have one relevant idea or concept. What am I doing? How well am I doing it? What’s my next step?
  • SOLOStagesHas several relevant ideas and may be able to makeconnections between these ideas. However thesignificance between them has yet to be made. What am I doing? How well am I doing it? What’s my next step?
  • SOLOStages Shows a good understanding of ideas or concepts and can see how things are connected or related to each other. What am I doing? How well am I doing it? What’s my next step?
  • SOLOStagesHas a real good understanding of subject, canmake great connections and can transferknowledge into a wider context and apply it. What am I doing? How well am I doing it? What’s my next step?
  • SOLOStagesAll the way through this process, the learnerasks… What am I doing? How well am I doing it? What’s my next step?
  • SOLOStages Each stage moves on to the next in order. Sometimes this process can take a while, other times it can be quick. What am I doing? How well am I doing it? What’s my next step?
  • SOLO onNature ofScience Here is a way of looking at our Nature of Science Strands with the SOLO taxonomy. You can treat it like a rubric. • Participating and contributing • Communicating in science • Understanding about science • Investigating in science What am I doing? How well am I doing it? What’s my next step?
  • SOLO onNature ofScience Prestructural Unistructural Multistructural Relational Extended Abstract I need help. I don’t I understand and can I understand and can I understand and can I understand and can understand what define something define several things define several things define several thingsUnderstanding about science is. from a scientific from a scientific from a scientific from a scientific viewpoint viewpoint viewpoint and how viewpoint and how they relate to each they relate to each science other other. I can then use the knowledge I’ve learnt and apply it to something else. (Eg Cartesian diver-Argo float. or Rainbow made with hose to rainbow in sky) What am I doing? How well am I doing it? What’s my next step?
  • SOLO onNature ofScience Prestructural Unistructural Multistructural Relational Extended Abstract I need help. I don’t I can do a simple I know more than one I can hypothesise and I can choose from a know where to start procedure or way to investigate and choose from a range range of strategiesInvestigating in with investigating investigation can form a simple of strategies to and give reasons for hypothesis investigate and give my choices. I can science reasons for my reflect on my choices. hypothesis and either record my findings or re-investigate with any adjustments I think should be made. What am I doing? How well am I doing it? What’s my next step?
  • SOLO onNature ofScience Prestructural Unistructural Multistructural Relational Extended Abstract I need help. I don’t I can identify I can recognise I know when to I can use scientificCommunicating in recognise or use different science different science use different words correctly any scientific words words and use science words and can hypothesise and science words them occasionally correctly evaluate doing so. I can evaluate my judgements against real-world consequences What am I doing? How well am I doing it? What’s my next step?
  • SOLO onNature ofScience Prestructural Unistructural Multistructural Relational Extended Abstract I don’t participate at all In investigations I can be In investigations I can be In investigations I can be In investigations I can beParticipating and contributing in Science involved if someone involved and know what involved and know what involved and know what tells me to do needs to be done needs to be done. I needs to be done. I something. I can volunteer ideas in work well with others work well with others I can share one idea a class discussion. and share the tasks. and share the tasks. I when the teacher asks When I speak I respond am able to hypothesise me to. to others ideas and what I think the volunteer my ideas outcome will be and evaluate our group findings. When I speak I volunteer ideas respond to others ideas, evaluate their ideas to suggest new ideas and directions to consider. What am I doing? How well am I doing it? What’s my next step?
