As we move forward with implementing the NGSS in multiple partner states, it is more and more likely that we will need to use tools like the EQuIP Rubric to assess our own attempts at designing NGSS lessons and units and those science materials provided by publishing companies. You can find the EQuIP Rubric and a facilitator’s guide at the links below:
The Teaching Channel also recently added a series of four videos to support work with the EQuIP Rubric:
NGSS EQuIP Rubric: Overview
NGSS EQuIP Rubric: 3-Dimensional Learning
NGSS EQuIP Rubric: Using Phenomena
NGSS EQuIP Rubric: Evidence of Student Learning
If you are interested, you can also view an example of how a publishing company (Engineering is Elementary) is using the EQuIP Rubric to connect existing instructional materials with NGSS.
