SCI-EL.ETS1.03 Plan and carry out fair tests in which variables are controlled and failure points are considered to identify aspects of a model or prototype that can be improved.
Clarification Statement Refer to the Engineering Design Process in the link above for a visual flow chart. This is a continuation of the previous standard.
Tests are often designed to identify failure points or difficulties, which suggest the elements of the design that need to be improved.
Different solutions need to be tested in order to determine which of them best solves the problem, given the criteria and the constraints.
