Join us on Tuesdays, February 9, 16, 23, and March 2, 2021, from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM ET for a NSTA Web Seminar Series on Assessment.

This web seminar series on assessing three-dimensional learning will move our learning community from research to practice over the course of four weeks. We’ll use high-quality instructional and assessment materials to identify the similarities and differences between tasks designed for instruction and assessment tasks.

Participants will leverage knowledge of these similarities and differences to better take advantage of research-based assessment tools to revise and design multi-dimensional (two or three dimensions) assessment tasks for use in their classroom. We’ll use samples of K-12 student work to evaluate if assessment tasks are eliciting the targeted elements of the three dimensions and creating opportunities for students to communicate what they know and are able to do using more than one modality.

During the four-part series participants have access to:

  • A moderated private forum for group discussions with other participants
  • Digital resources and all NSTA online community tools (My Library, My Learning Plan, My Profile, Community Forums)
  • Web seminar series archive including video recordings and curated collection of supporting resources (continued access after the series ends)

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

  • Use the four critical aspects of sensemaking to evaluate and revise existing assessment tasks
  • Design questions that elicit student responses for targeted elements of the three dimensions and create opportunities for students to communicate what they know using multiple modalities
  • Create a scenario-driven, multi-dimensional assessment task

Science Leaders Can Sponsor a Group of Teachers:

Are you a state, district, or school leader responsible for providing professional learning experiences for K-12 educators?  Consider sponsoring a group of teachers to participate in this NSTA Web Seminar Series.

Registration is $1,500.00 flat fee per cohort of up to 25 participants, regardless of their NSTA membership status.
