The differences in types of scientific inquiry can be organized along a continuum according to the degree of teacher control and intellectual sophistication involved in each type of inquiry. • Types of scientific inquiry can also be defined according to whether they produce cultural knowledge or personal knowledge. • Authentic scientific inquiry is defined according to five characteristics: development of personal and cultural knowledge; contextualized scientific knowledge; the progression toward high-order problem solving; social interaction for scientific goals; and scientific inquiry as a multi-stage and multi-representational process.

294). The shell format builds upon the previous work conducted by this group of researchers and presented in SolanoFlores and Shavelson (1997) and Shavelson et al. (1998). Working within the scheme of the four inquiry types reviewed above, the shell divides the task into four student stages: planning, hands-on investigation, analysis, and interpretation and application. The shell also allows the manipulation of the task according to the type of equipment, the number of variables, the amount of conceptual information, the directions given, and the use of equipment.

For example, a scientific inquiry task could be open ended without any clarification of the specific tasks to be performed or it could consist of a series of prescribed directions that need to be performed. The former task would be considered to be relatively unstructured placing a large conceptual and planning responsibility on the student; whereas the latter task would be considered to be a highly structured task with detailed instructions. For the purpose of assessment development, it can be helpful to differentiate between the specific manifestations of testing (such as multiple choice items) and the theoretical concepts that underpin these test types.
