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.
See below for Videos of the workshop.
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.
