PMS Students Learn Comparative Testing

Consumer Challenge

Comparative testing includes the investigation of potential consumers’ reactions to a proposed product or service before introduction of the product or service to market. Mrs. Brooks’ 6th grade science students at Poquoson Middle School demonstrated an understanding of scientific reasoning and logic during a recent classroom lab.   Test products compared included chocolate, nail polish, mascara, detergent, diapers, and toothpaste, and others.  This lab provided valuable information that will help them identify perceptions, test quality, hypothesize results, and determine validity.
