Types of matter - using the particle model assessment
This Scootle assessment item follows on from the 'states of matter' activity and tests student’s ability to identify characteristics of solids, liquids and gases using the particle model. At the end a report is created that can be printed and handed to a teacher. This assessment is useful in quickly identifying the students who have grasped the concept. It can be used as a pre-test to determine prior knowledge and then post-test to show improvement.
