Ross Park is the oldest government primary school in Alice Springs. It has almost 400 students of which 25 per cent are Indigenous. At the school, a pre-service teacher from Charles Darwin University is in her final round of teaching practice. The teacher has taught the class a science inquiry unit on how environmental changes may affect the growth of flower seedlings. At the conclusion of the unit, students have written a report, based on which the pre-service teacher is making a summative assessment of each student's learning outcomes.
