Abstract: Students find qualitative analysis practical work difficult and are often uncertain about what they are doing in the laboratory. Students need to have tacit knowledge of the phenomena and reagents involved in qualitative analysis to understand the reactions that occur and the results that they get doing the experiments. Teachers also need to make explicit the links between the theory that students learn in class and the practical work that students do. In addition, teachers need to model the metacognitive strategies that students need in qualitative analysis practical work.
