Stage Three

Learning Intention:
  • Develop science fair vocabulary and comprehension of terms.
  • Plan a fair test.
Success Criteria:
  • Able to use science fair vocabulary in the correct context.
  • Able to plan a fair test considering variables and controls.

My Hypothesis:
I think that coloured text will be remembered easier, because in similar tests, the results have said that colour is easier to remember.


  • List 1 and 2 need to be the same.
  • The same time of day.
  • The same room.
  • Make sure everyone is separated so no one can cheat.
  • How many words each person recalls, in black and white or colour.
  • Colour
  • Black and white
  • 40 photocopies of list one and two.
  • 40 year 8 students. 20 girls, 20 boys.
  • A pen or pencil for each person.
  • A nice quiet room.
Important points from my research:
  • I found the results in similar tests led to Boys being slightly better at remembering text than girls.
