This project has designed and implemented a coding scheme for assessing students' content knowledge and inquiry skills, as derived from their open response answers, in the domain of physical sciences. In addition, it had used the data obtained from the coding scheme to perform a statistical analysis, which was used to compare students' learning of Control for Variable Strategy (CVS, henceforth) across three different learning conditions, namely: direct instruction with reification, direct instruction without reification, and discovery learning.
