NSTA Virtual Workshop, July 23-24, 2020. Assessing 3D Learning

Three-dimensional teaching and learning present new opportunities to build assessments that move student learning forward. The challenge we face is how do we get there from our current system of assessment. In this workshop, participants will begin by learning how to leverage student artifacts as part of a formative assessment cycle using a student work analysis protocol. Participants will also gain experience using science assessment tasks screening tools.
