Outlines general approach, but no detail on controlling variables. May control one variable and ignore others. Plans what to control and compare but does’t carry through in practice Identifies multiple variables, holds them constant, and collects data on the manipulated variable.

Controls multiple variables and knows the implications and limits of variables on an experiment. Do experiments with a control.

Uses preliminary or supplementary experiments to refine experimental design for subsequent experiments.
