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

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. These tools can be used to evaluate and improve existing formative and summative assessment tasks as well as to develop phenomenon-driven, multidimensional tasks.

Workshop Objectives:

  • Construct an explanation of the key features of assessing three-dimensional learning
  • Analyze assessment tasks to determine whether they are likely to elicit evidence of three-dimensional learning
  • Evaluate student artifacts for evidence of three-dimensional learning
  • Modify assessment tasks to better assess three-dimensional learning based on criteria for evaluating the quality of the tasks

All participants receive:

  • A digital version of The NSTA Quick-Reference Guide to the NGSS, K–12, edited by Ted Willard
  • All presentation materials, including slides and handouts
  • The ongoing support they need to be leaders via the NSTA private forums

Rates: $105 members, $130 non-members
