NGSS-Aligned Summative Classroom Assessments of Three-Dimensional Learning: This workshop will engage teachers with sample assessments designed to assess 3D learning related to several middle school life, earth, and physical science NGSS PEs. The key features of each assessment will be highlighted to help teachers understand where each PE dimension is addressed, how to help their students navigate the prompts, and how to use this information to work with assessments in their own curriculum or to design their own. They will also examine a sample that integrates an engineering PE as an example of a “bundled” assessment. The items used are summative, designed to bridge the formative classroom assessments embedded in specific curricula and large-scale state assessments. Teachers will also explore addressing equity issues in using assessments. They will leave with knowledge about how to help their students navigate and respond to 3D assessments within and outside the context of whatever curriculum they use.
