Populations
- do this with teachers to share research learning
- with kids just talk about the population and what it is each time

We did a sorting by population activity - if you are doing this with teachers, the basic instruction is to work out the broadest population through to the target population, there are six population groups - sampling is the lowest ranked, New Zealand year group is the best, the rest fit between. Use the sheet on classification of questions to help you work out which order they go in. There are 8 questions, six categories, some double up. We are only interested in the population of the question for this activity. this is not for kids. Data set outlines the variables and population for the investigative questions.

The handout classification of questions includes the population classifications and then the summary and comparison investigative questions classifications. An investigative question has the two parts to it. For more on grading investigative questions see my PhD, chapter 6: https://researchspace.auckland.ac.nz/handle/2292/21305

Also see Posing Investigative questions paper from ICME-13

Two tables in my PhD give full examples of the different categories of summary and comparison questions. these tables are Figure 6-6 and Figure 6-9.
Table 6-3 gives detailed information about what makes a good investigative question. These three figures are in this document.
