Member Web Seminar

Join us on Tuesday, May 21, 2024, from 7:00 PM to 8:15 PM ET and meet Joe Krajcik and Christopher Harris authors of the new NSTA Press Book, Creating and Using Instructionally Supportive Assessments in NGSS Classrooms.

The kind of assessment tasks needed for today’s science classrooms must assess the active and integrated learning that comes from instruction that engages students in using and applying disciplinary core ideas, crosscutting concepts, and science and engineering practices. This book aims to support science educators in designing assessment tasks for classroom use that will assess three-dimensional learning. It helps answer the question:  How can we create tasks that can be used to gain insight into students’ progress in building toward ideas in the Framework and three-dimensional performance expectations? This book offers the Next Generation Science Assessment design process as an innovative solution for science educators to create assessments that align with the contemporary vision for science education and are useful and usable in classrooms.

All individuals receive a certificate of participation and 100 NSTA activity points for attending the live seminar and completing the end-of-program survey. A certificate of participation is not awarded for watching the recorded version of the program.
