Product Description

NEW! This bundled resource contains quality, EDITABLE sample assessment, test questions and performance tasks for the NGSS Middle School Life Science Performance Expectations MS-LS1 From Molecules to Organisms. It includes 40 questions or tasks total for MS-LS1-1 through MS-LS1-8 only. The questions can be edited, copied and pasted into various forms of assessments to align to the NGSS. Ideas for differentiation, answers keys, and links to other online resources to help teach the standards are also provided! See sample question below!

Use these sample questions for: pre-assessments, check-ins or quizzes, unit tests, and/or for your professional growth objectives!

The questions cover the 3 dimensions of the NGSS and include:

  • constructed response questions
  • performance tasks
  • questions with multiple components

Each Performance Expectation includes a set of 5 questions that require students to use Science and Engineering Practices as well as Crosscutting Concepts to demonstrate understanding of the Disciplinary Core Ideas. The SEPs and CCCs are listed for each PE. Keep in mind that the tasks require more time than a standard test question, therefore, there should be fewer questions on a test which allows for more time to solve the problems.

SAMPLE Question:

MS-LS1-1 Observe the chart below (chart provided in document). The images of the organisms were taken of specimens using a standard light microscope. Using the information/evidence in the chart to answer the questions.

a. What patterns do you see in the chart? Name at least two.

b. In relation to the crosscutting concept of “Scale, Proportion, and Quantity,” why is it important to know these images were taken using a light microscope (standard microscope)?

c. Does the evidence in the chart support or refute the claim that living things are made of one or more cells? Explain using information from the chart

This product includes:

  1. Background info on NGSS assessments and tasks
  2. 40 EDITABLE questions, tasks, etc.
  3. Answer Key
  4. Ideas for differentiation
