Three-dimensional teaching and learning poses both new challenges and new opportunities in assessment. In this workshop, participants focus on how to address the challenges and take advantage of the opportunities. They learn to examine student models for evidence of three-dimensional learning. They also learn criteria they can use to evaluate the quality of assessment tasks and analyze tasks in an effort to improve their quality.

Participants receive The NSTA Quick-Reference Guide to the NGSS, K–12, edited by Ted Willard

Workshop Objectives

  • Construct an explanation of the key feature 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
