This topic study for elementary teachers on assessing three-dimensional learning will use assessment tasks from high-quality instructional materials and research-based assessment tools to guide our learning about what makes an assessment task meaningful to both teachers and students.

The learning targets of this topic study include:

  • Gain experience evaluating and revising existing assessment tasks for sensemaking and accessibility to the task.
  • Recognize characteristics of questions that elicit student responses for targeted elements of the three dimensions.
  • Identify multiple opportunities within a lesson, lesson set and unit to formatively assess students’ understanding (and skill) of the targeted elements of the three dimensions.

Prerequisites:

To better serve all participants, if you are teaching in a state, district or school that has not adopted or adapted the Next Generation Science Standards, you may want to read NGSS Appendix A: Conceptual Shifts to familiarize yourself with the three dimensions of teachings and learning and the conceptual shifts represented in the standards. Participants may also benefit from familiarizing themselves with commonly used acronyms such as DCI (disciplinary core ideas), SEP (science and engineering practices), and CCC (crosscutting concepts) to support their learning throughout the web seminar series.

Program dates:

The four live web seminars are scheduled from 7:00 – 8:30 PM Eastern time (4:00 – 5:30 PM PT) on the following dates: November 14, 28, December 5, and 12, 2022.

During the four-part series participants have access to:

  • Digital resources and all NSTA online community tools (My Library, My Profile, Discussion Forums).
  • Web seminar series archives including program recordings and curated collection of supporting resources (continued access after the series ends).

By the end of the series, participants will be able to:

  • Recognize characteristics of questions that elicit student responses for targeted elements of the three dimensions.
  • Identify multiple opportunities within a lesson, lesson set and unit to formatively assess students’ understanding (and skill) of the targeted elements of the three dimensions.

Participants will receive a certificate from NSTA after each live web seminar for (1) attending the live program AND (2) completing the post-program survey.

Groups of elementary school teachers:

Science Leaders Can Sponsor Groups of Educators!  Are you a state, district, or school leader responsible for providing professional learning experiences for elementary level educators?  Consider sponsoring a cohort of teachers to participate in the Topic Study for Elementary Teachers: Designing Meaningful 3-D Assessments.

Cost to groups:

$1,500 flat fee per cohort of 25 participants, regardless of their NSTA membership status. Additional participants (beyond 25) charged at $60 per person.

If you are interested in sponsoring a group of at least 25 individuals, please contact Flavio Mendez via email ([email protected]) for a quote.
