Workshop on Developing Assessments of Science Proficiency in K-12

 

 

On September 13, 2012, the Committee on Developing Assessments for K-12 Science Proficiency held a workshop to explore strategies for assessing science practices, crosscutting concepts, and core ideas as described in the newly released Framework for K-12 Science Education

  • consider the measurement challenges posed by the Framework;
  • explore a variety of strategies for gathering assessment information, including classroom-based, end-of-course assessments and end-of-year, summative assessments; and
  • discuss methods for combining/integrating information from different types of assessments.
 
For copies of the PowerPoints presented during the workshop please see the workshop agenda.

The workshop was held as part of a study that will recommend strategies for measuring students’ proficiency in science as laid out in the Framework for K-12 Science Education. This study is funded by the Carnegie Corporation of New York, the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, and the S.D. Bechtel, Jr. Foundation.
