Formative assessment shall help to promote learning and develop competence in the subject. The pupils demonstrate and develop competence in natural science in the vg1 programme for electrical engineering and computer technology when they use relevant subject-related terminology, theories and models to explore, describe, explain and discuss relationships in and between natural-science phenomena. They also demonstrate and develop competence when they argue for the choice of methods, undertake ethical and safety assessments, reflect on findings and critically assess sources and information relating to their explorations and experiments. They also demonstrate and develop competence when they apply and reflect on natural-science practices and approaches and natural-science technology.
The teacher shall facilitate for pupil participation and stimulate their desire to learn by facilitating for varied, practical and exploratory ways of working. The teacher and pupils shall engage in dialogue about their development in natural science. The pupils shall be given the opportunity to explore and experiment. With the competence the pupils have demonstrated as the starting point, they shall be given the opportunity to express what they believe they have achieved, and reflect on their development in the subject. The teacher shall provide guidance on further learning and adapt the teaching to enable the pupils to use the guidance to develop their competence in natural science.
