PHIRE Assessment Tools
This chapter provides further clarification and exemplification of the specific assessment tools developed and used within the PHIRE program to evaluate student educational progress. As described in Chap. 7, the overall assessment strategy was based on a contextualized, multimethod approach and consists of five different tools: the substantive knowledge test, the physical checklist, the visual literacy test, the notebook assessment tool, and the knowledge presentation performance test. In the sections that follow each of these assessment tools is described individually.
