    Abstract

    With the assumption that exemplary curriculum materials have the potential to serve as an effective support for teachers implementing an innovative curriculum reform, this study was initiated in September 1999. Its aim was to investigate the characteristics of BGCSE exemplary curriculum materials (consisting of a teacher guide and students' materials) meant to support teachers in the implementation of formative assessment of investigative practical work in Form 4 upper secondary chemistry classes in Botswana. The study was guided by the following research question: How can exemplary curriculum materials support senior secondary chemistry teachers in Botswana with the implementation of formative assessment of student investigative practical work?
