Do you want to improve your science teaching? How are you formatively assessing student learning in science? The new science standards require three dimensional teaching and learning, but how do you assess student use of the Science and Engineering practices, Crosscutting Concepts, and Disciplinary Core Ideas?
In this session, we will examine assessment tasks, revise them to better inform instruction of the new science standards, and compare to ACT Aspire exemplar assessment items. You will learn to identify DOK levels in current assessments and how to increase the rigor of those assessments.
