NEW PD SESSION: How to Assess Three-Dimensional Learning in the Classroom: Building Assessment Tasks that Work (ACESSE Resource B)
Posted on February 21, 2017
We recently published our second open educational resource (OER) professional development session to the STEM Teaching Tools site! This PD session is focused on How to Assess Three-Dimensional Learning in the Classroom: Building Assessment Tasks that Work. In this session, teachers analyze sets of drafted assessment items to see if and how they are three-dimensional -- and then revise them to make them more 3D and more fair to English Language Learners. The resource is for a 60-90 minute PD session, and it includes all of the resources that PD facilitators need to adapt and run the session—including slides, speaker notes, facilitator guide, and embedded resources. It builds on the introduction to formative assessment for science education provided through our first OER resource from last month. Feedback is always welcome.
This resource comes from the Advancing Coherent and Equitable Systems of Science Education (ACESSE, or “access”) project—funded by NSF—focused on promoting 3D science instruction through a partnership with 13 states involving staff from CU Boulder, the Council of State Science Supervisors, and the University of Washington.
