DEVELOPMENT OF ANALYSIS AND EVALUATION SKILLS IN A PHYSICS TEACHING THROUGH PRACTICAL WORK.
This research paper addresses how to enhance analysis and evaluation skills in physics lessons using practical or lab work. Analysis and evaluation skills are very important for high school science students that can lead to developing critical thinking also, especially where English is a third-level language. Practicality plays a very important role in understanding complex and confusing topics, so integrating physics lessons with teaching practical work can improve a significant level of understanding. We have researched and analyzed data after applying for practical work in regular lessons and conclusions based on three factors, (a) performance on term-end examinations (b) Attitude towards physics/science (c) Awareness, and more enrolment in physics in grade 12. We have used the Form Two Students Attitude Questionnaire, and FTSAQ to get data to justify the research question. The study was performed on students in grade -11(NIS, Chem, and Bio, Shymkent, Kazakhstan. Respondents were divided into two groups: (1) the Control group and (2) the Experimental Group. Control group were taught in term 3 with all possible teaching methodologies (interactive lesson, Assessment, Inquiry-based learning) except practical work but in another group, practical work was included to analyze the effectiveness of integration. Results are exactly as assumed; a group with the integration of practical work was high results, an attitude towards physics, and a more interesting subject with less confusion and more problem-solving skills. The approach to solving problems and connecting concepts with real-life is increased significantly.

INTRODUCTION Students are a nation's future, and scientifically knowledgeable students may help establish a developed society. Because secondary school provides the basis for higher education, it must be as robust as possible. Physics is one of the most essential mathematics and natural science courses. Students who desire to pursue further education degrees in physics or study engineering or medical sciences must have a good background in physics. The emphasis should be on giving secondary students with clear and consistent basic physics topic understanding that they may apply in their future studies, daily life, or research pursuits. A Physics lab can help a student determine the significance of a theory. It clarifies the fundamental understanding of the topic in the minds of the learners. Students recognize the distinction between theory and application. A physics laboratory can assist a student to improve their approach to the topic. Experiments conducted in Physics laboratories teach students how to be patient and meticulous while making observations and calculating assumptions. The lab is an essential part of the curriculum to bridge the gap between theories and applying knowledge for research, and it is here in the Physics lab that a student learns what it means to be a researcher. The laboratory is aimed at enabling students to learn physics theories in a more elaborative manner with the involvement of its application. The experiments carried out are mostly the ones in coherence with the curriculum.
