Most assessment for this instruction is embedded in each inquiry. Through the use of student Observation and Reflection Journals, the teacher may see if (1) students learn and collect data in a systemic way; (2) use intuitive notions of concepts to build vocabulary; (3) draw on accurate use of vocabulary to (3) gain symbolic representations of data; and (4) understand the connection between symbols and real-world events. A student's ability to use symbols to represent data will be assessed primarily through their assignment in Inquiry Eight, where each will make a graph and explain it using words, mathematic notation, and/or other pictures. Students will develop rubrics for "what makes an informative graph." When students generate their own criteria and/or rubrics for good work, they are more likely to be self-regulated learners who truly understand and can benefit from the ways they are being assessed
