Next Generation Science Assessment

Screen Shot 2016-04-08 at 8.56.16 AMOVERVIEW: Next Generation Science Assessment is a collaboration among Michigan State University, SRI International, University of Illinois at Chicago, and the Concord Consortium. The goal of the project is to develop assessment tasks that are technology-enhanced that support physical science and life science disciplinary core ideas in middle school. There are currently several physical science tasks available and the goal is to have life science tasks available soon (spring 2016).

The main page of the project is HERE at http://nextgenscienceassessment.org/

This is were you will find information about the project and the process used to develop the tasks.

In order to access the tasks (task portal) you need to go HERE at http://ngss-assessment.portal.concord.org/

At the task portal (run by Concord Consortium) you are able to set up a teacher account, create classes, assign specific tasks, and get reports of student progress. You can also preview the tasks without setting up an account.

AUDIENCE: Middle School Science teachers, science teachers, teacher leaders, professional development providers, administrators, curriculum directors

PURPOSE: Provide the field with technology-enhanced NGSS-aligned assessment tasks for middle school physical science and life science core ideas
