This session will equip assessment professionals to retool traditional, disciplinary content-heavy college science assessments by using the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). The National Research Council and education stakeholders have proposed that states should teach and assess not only the one dimension of science content knowledge but three dimensions of science: 1) disciplinary core ideas (DCI) (2) science and engineering practices (SEP), and (3) crosscutting concepts (CCC). Subsequently, states and universities are creating 3-D science assessments that align with 3-D instruction.
Assessment professionals will benefit by understanding the three dimensions of NGSS and how they can shape assessments. The NGSS provide a common language and logic between assessment professionals and subject matter experts. The session will point to NGSS performance expectations, evidence statements and learning progressions that are the foundations of good assessment design. In this session, you will learn assessment lessons through science demos, learn how to color-code 3-D NGSS performance expectations, achieve fluency in the NGSS through games and view examples of three-dimensional science assessments.
