This assessment probe can be used with CTS Section IV. This probe targets student ideas related to when objects can be seen in the sky. The probe can be used to examine student work related to the idea that some objects can be seen only in the day time, some only at night, and some,like the moon, can be seen in both day and night. In addition, the teacher notes provide further information for CTS Sections II, III, and IV.
