As leaders in science education, we are often charged with developing assessment systems for our school or district. What makes up a local comprehensive assessment system? What structures and processes best support an effective system? How do classroom-embedded assessment tasks that involve students’ using “physical stuff” fit in?    This session provides resources and rationale to use as you introduce shifts in assessment called for by the NRC Framework, the NRC Developing Assessments for the Next Generation Science Standards, and the NGSS.

In addition to thinking about the system as a whole, you will engage in a classroom hands-on performance assessment task as you consider a variety of assessment strategies. Bring your expertise to share and learn from others what’s working in their districts.
