Why do students score poorly for open-ended science questions?
Students often struggle with open-ended questions (OEQs). On the surface, it seems that students struggle because they don't know the answering techniques and they don't use keywords.
However, these challenges only hint at deeper root problems.
Many students lack a solid grasp of certain topics. This means they tend to get confused by a new type of question. When it comes to relating a correct science concept to the observation, they lack a concept bank to draw on.
The lack of answering techniques could be due to several root problems like not knowing how to read and interpret data and not knowing how to make specific comparisons etc.
To help your child excel in OEQs, you need to address these root problems.
