    A professor's questions should build confidence rather than induce fear. One technique is to encourage the student to propose several different answers to the question. The student can then be encouraged to step outside the answers and begin to develop the skills necessary to assess the answers. Some questions seek facts and simply measure. ® Physics 1 and 2 Inquiry-Based Lab Investigations.

particular the central role of uncertainty in experi-mental measurement. We believe that the probabilis-tic approach to data analysis, as advocated by the In-ternational Organization for Standardization (ISO), will result in a more coherent framework for teaching measurement and measurement uncertainty in the in-troductory physics laboratory.

While much attention has been paid to curriculum and teaching methods, relatively little has been written about laboratory instruction. As an example, in surveys of the articles published in the Journal of Engi-neering Education from toit was found that only The role of the laboratory is central in high school physics courses since students must construct their own understanding of physics ideas.
