How Do You Measure Students’ Success with NGSS?

The NGSS Performance Expectations require a rethinking of traditional assessments, especially standard paper-and-pencil tests. Are you ready?
 

How will you gauge how well your students:
 

  • Identify problems and design solutions?
  • Plan and conduct investigations?
  • Thoroughly research and report their findings?
  • Develop models?
  • Articulate their thoughts and ideas through oral, written, and multimedia communications?

We can help. Use these rubrics from the Building Blocks of Science® program, which are designed to assess:

 
  • Authentic student-generated experiments
  • Student-developed models that aid in the presentation of content
  • Evidence-driven, student-generated product and collaboration among peer groups
