The NGSS assessment approach voyages beyond pen-paper tests. Ever wonder what an NGSS assessment looks like? Here they are! It requires students to demonstrate their understanding of a phenomenon through the eight Science and Engineering Practices. These printable worksheets can be used to evaluate student understanding while using the SEP as a vehicle for this assessment. Follow these steps to appropriately use the printables in class:
First, decide which Science/Engineering Practice would be appropriate for your lesson.
Second, introduce a phenomenon to the students.
Third, select 1 of the 8 printables that you would like to use as a check for understanding.
Each printable focuses on a SE Practice. Students are required to complete the worksheet as a performance assessment. These can be used for any activity you do in a late elementary/middle school science class. A helpful answer key is included as a guide for teachers. Enjoy!
