In this performance assessment students will develop and test a design change of the Hoop Glider to increase its flight distance.
This is a curriculum-embedded performance assessment. Curriculum-embedded performance assessments connect curriculum instruction (what the students are learning and doing) with assessment. It is meant to measure multiple performance outcomes and provide the teacher with evidence about students' ability to apply their knowledge of science process skills and experimental design.
There are opportunities for students to work collaboratively, but also produce individual products. There are also opportunities for students to self-assess, peer assess, and to utilize those assessments in the revision process. The final product can be individual or team collaboration.
The main focus of this assessment is using science process skills to design and conduct an experiment. Through the implementation of this performance assessment students will:
*Ask questions and formulate a statement of the problem
*Develop a testable hypothesis
*Develop a procedure that includes a specific list of
*Collect, organize, and represent qualitative and
*Analyze and interpret data
